The world is facing a serious problem of population aging. The research of senior tourism not only can effectively alleviate the urban population expansion, but also can promote the development of the economy in small and medium-sized cities. The main problem of current senior tourism is that single function cannot meet the cultural, medical, life and production needs of old people. A new strategy of senior tourism is proposed with actual design case. The new strategy of senior tourism would put tourism, culture, entertainment, medical, and other functions together. It will extend the elderly industrial chain and integrate different resources.
