With the rapid development of tourism in China, various disputes arising from or relating to tour contract are also increasing gradually. However, in comparison with the status of the3rd biggest tour country, tourism law has not yet developed as expected. Provisions of the Supreme People’s Court on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Cases about Tour Disputes which issued by the Supreme People’s Court Judicial Committee is the most authoritative judicial interpretation currently. In addition, Regulation on tour Agencies, Compensation Standard on Service Quality of tour Agencies and so on, are relatively comprehensive stipulations regarding tourism in China now. In conclusion, there is no special stipulation regarding tourism in China currently. In judicial practice, disputes about tour contracts are always handled in pursuant to current stipulations of General Rule of Civil Law of The People’s Republic of China and Contract Law of The People’s Republic of China without any universal standard. Obviously, the development of legislation on tourism is far slower than that of tourism itself, therefore more attention shall be paid to relevant matters on tour contracts. The Paper through introduction of the legislation and practice situations of USA, England, Germany, Japanese and Taiwan region, in combination of the situation of relevant theory, legislation and judicial practice in China, makes discussion in the following matters mainly including definition, feature, nature and legal responsibility of tour contract as well as spiritual damage compensation of contract.The Paper includes three parts as follows except introduction and conclusion:The first chapter is tour contract overview including three sections.
