Travel is one of the fastest growing industries of this century. Among the world's countries, there are none which have not made significant efforts to develop their travel industries. Among the Asian nations, Thailand is one of the earliest in this trend, with its constant promotion of large-scale international sales as well as its Medical Tourism Cluster. This Cluster has received a high level of emphasis in recent years, with substantial results. Furthermore, commensurate with economic expansion in mainland China and Taiwan, Chinese-speaking travelers visiting Thailand have increased dramatically; and this has resulted in a serious shortage of Chinese-speaking tour guides in Thailand. Thus, in order to solve this problem of supply vs. demand, there is an urgent need to train professional tour guides in the Chinese language. According to the survey International Structure Design (Dick& Carey, 1990), Thai-based learning materials for travel Chinese or insufficient; and the development of web-based materials would best serve the needs of Thai-speaking tour guides with intermediate to advanced Chinese language skills who wish to further improve their proficiency. This study first addresses the stages of analysing the needs of Thai-speaking learners, collecting and organising relevant literature, assessing pedagogical and teaching materials, defining the scope of pedogical content, the planning and categorisation of webpage design, and providing suitable web-based examples. For this study, 69 learners from four different national universities in Thailand were used as subjects; 10 of which were teachers of Mandarin in Thailand, and 3 of which were Thai / Mandarin bilingual tour guides in Thailand. From the results and interviews of this study, it can be observed that learning materials on the market for tourism Chinese are very scarce; and that most learners consider multi-media materials to be the most effective. The learning materials used on this website are divided into 3 units：The Practical Tour Guide, Lessons in Chinese for Tourism, and Essential Points for Chinese Tourism. Lessons in Chinese for Tourism of this study comprises 10 units, each containing six pedagogical steps which form the foundation of the learning process. Finally, for the stages of assessment and correction, 37 learners and 6 Thai teachers who had used the website were given a list of satisfaction criteria. The result was that learners and teachers both gave high appraisal to the many designs involved in the website, and that the practicality of multi-media was a major strength of the website. Learner satisfaction criteria on the whole averaged at 4.066 points, while teacher satisfaction criteria also averaged at 4.179 points. Thus, the results and interviews of the survey indicate that this website design meets the needs of learners in all aspects.
