Abstract: Bashu  culture  occupies  a  very  important  position  in  Chinese  regional  culture. Together with Wuyue culture and Jingchu culture, it is known as the three ancient cultures of  the  Yangtze  River.  As  a  large  ancient  transportation  system  of  “living  state”,  the  Bashu cultural  tourism  corridor  has  many  natural  and  cultural  heritages  distributed  along  it. It embodies the typical characteristics of linear cultural heritage in time and space. As the key path  of  constructing  Chengdu-Chongqing  economic  circle,  Bashu  Cultural  tourism  corridor currently  has  two  core  problems:  firstly,  how  to  evaluate  the  spatial  characteristics  of  the corridor; secondly, how to efciently optimize the corridor protection and development path. It is a new idea to deal with the problems of cultural tourism resources and space construction efficiency  through  the  evaluation  of  corridor  construction. On  the  basis  of  clarifying  the characteristics  of  establishment  and  application, this  paper  analyzes  and  evaluates  the historical  context,  research  object  and  research  content  of  Bashu  cultural  tourism  corridor, and  summarizes  the  spatial  characteristics  of  the  corridor. At  the  same  time, the  research on  the  adaptability  of  cultural  system  shows  that  the  research  objects  pay  more  and  more attention  to  the  combination  of  contiguity  and  cross-region  development  trend,  indicating that  around  the  common  theme  and  key  area  of  Bashu  culture,  explore  the  path  of  regional cultural protection and inheritance. This  paper  covers  15  cities  and  29  counties,  and  uses  the  system  evaluation  method. It establishes  the  evaluation  system  of  Bashu  cultural  tourism  corridor  construction,  collects information  with  the  help  of  network,  and  uses  the comprehensive  evaluation  method  for quantitative  evaluation.  According  to  the  evaluation  results,  it  makes  grade  distinction, category  distinction  and  regional  distinction.  Through  the  analysis  of  the  comprehensive level  of  cultural  tourism  resources  and  human  settlement  system,  the  research  results  show that there are two points. 1) Points driving: the construction of human settlement presents the spatial  non-equilibrium  in  the  spatial  distribution,  and  it  takes  Chengdu  city  and  Yuzhong District  as  the  peak  area,  showing  the  spatial  pattern  of  “two  points  driving”.  2)  Strip developing:  the  spatial  distribution  of  cultural  and  tourism  resources  presents  obvious  strip characteristics, and it has formed a “cultural tourism resource advantage strip” of Leshan, Chengdu,  Nanchong  and  Yuzhong, covering Ya’an,  Mianyang, Jiangbei and  Dazu  cities  and counties.  Finally,  according  to  the  evaluation  results  of  the  present  situation,  this  paper  summarizes  the  characteristics  of  the  protection  and development  space  layout  of  the  construction  of  Bashu  cultural  tourism  corridor.  By  combining  the  implementation  requirements  of  the  rural revitalization strategy and the level of urban construction, and sorting out the regional humanistic characteristics, this paper divides the research objects into five regional cultures, including double city culture, mountain city military culture, shallow hill agricultural and commercial culture, Xijiang ecological culture, Han Miao and Tujia culture. On this basis, this paper puts forward valuable preservation and development strategies for cultural routes.Starting from regional cultural resources and based on the connotation of cultural resources, this paper defines the relationship between cultural tourism resources and the construction of Bashu cultural tourism corridor. This paper attempts to construct a model to scientifically evaluate the degree of coordination between cultural and tourism resources and human settlement construction in order to enrich the research system of cultural and tourism integration. It provides theoretical basis and field data collection for promoting the organic integration of regional culture and tourism and improving the cultural soft power of Bashu region. However, due to the uniqueness and complexity of Bashu culture, more scientific and regional quantitative discussion is needed on the influence path and mode of the evaluation of the construction of Bashu cultural tourism corridor. The evaluation system of Bashu cultural tourism corridor needs to be perfected and optimized. In the future, accurate grasp of regional ecological and cultural resources advantage, exploring the integration and coordination mode of culture and tourism, protecting and enhancing the soft power of Bashu culture is the key content of the research.
