In the development of city tourism, as the "signboard" and "name card" of a city, the city image is one of the most important parts of a city, and also is the vital factor influencing the landscape planning and designing of a city or a region and the city tourism. This paper, taking Shaoxing, a city with navigable waterways crisscrossing the urban area in Zhejiang Province as an example, explores the landscape planning and designing and the watercity tourism image construction based on the basic characteristics of the city such as rivers and lakes, waterways, bridges, dark-awninged boats, architecture, and other relavant features of peculiar human and culture landscapes.
