Abstract (Chinese)
本⽂运⽤⽂化⼈类学和⽂化分析的⽅法,旨在研究中国游客在北欧南部地区旅游时对当
地饮⾷⽂化的体验。本⽂调查了中国游客购买和体验当地饮⾷及其相关活动并以此作为当地
饮⾷主题的旅游活动的发展参考。
⾸先,本⽂从中国游客热衷的饮⾷活动出发,⽐如购买⾷品和体验当地饮⾷⽂化为主题
的活动等,来探究这些活动对中国游客的意义。通过探究它们的意义来分析这些活动的利弊,
以及展⽰中国游客对北欧南部地区饮⾷⽂化的了解。
其次,烹饪在当下已成为饮⾷为主题的旅游活动的⼀个发展项⽬。同时,烹饪作为⽇常
⽣活的⼀部分以及旅游活动中的⼀个项⽬有着不同的意义和作⽤。通过⽐较两者的不同,我
们可以发现在与当地居民烹饪的过程中,中国游客可以获得更多的感官体验。同时,与当地
居民进餐过程中,中国游客可以获得更直接的交流体验。并且,在此过程中,中国游客的价
值观得以体现,⾝份得以转换并且可以与当地⼈建⽴联系从⽽对当地⽂化有更深刻的了解和
体会。
最后,饮⾷在旅游中扮演着重要⾓⾊。它们作为⼀种媒介可以使游客从饮⾷这个⽅⾯来
了解当地⽂化,并且融⼊到当地⽂化之中。
