From the perspective of dissipative structure theory, the article considered Qiandao lake tourism destination as a dissipative structure for the support of natural and socio-economic environment, including the attraction subsystem, the infrastructure subsystem, the service subsystem and the subsystem of support. The article tries to reveal the evolution of the destination. From 1959 to 1981, Qiandao lake tourism system was in the embryonic statement when each subsystem had not been formed; the next 12 years experienced the formation process when the subsystems were gradually improved, the overall effects of tourism system began to appear. The period 1995-2000 was the development process, subsystems became mature and there were significant interactions between each subsystem, the overall effect of the system were gradually improved. After 2000, Qiandao lake tourism system was in the better-improving state, and all subsystems are coordinating to impel the most benefit under the whole system. The article analyzed the dynamic mechanism of the evolution and considered the essence of the evolution as a negative entropy input process of the dissipative structure. The nonlinear interaction between the elements of the system was the power of evolution through the heter-organization based on the environment and the control of the government, and the self-organization based on the nonlinear interactions of supply and demand, the man-land relationship, the coordination of regions and the balance of different stakeholders to be realized.
