    Abstract: The paper will explore ethnic image of Huaxin Street, a region in Zhonghe, Taiwan occupied by immigrant Chinese Burmese from the perspective of John Urry’s tourist gaze. We will focus on interactions of three social roles: Taiwan government, Burmese business people of Huaxin Street and local tourists. Oppressed by nationalization policy of the Burmese military government in the 1960s, many Chinese Burmese chose to leave Myanmar and went to Taiwan and other places. A majority of those in Taiwan, who would adhere to Chinese orthodoxy, settled in Huaxin Street of Zhonghe, with the number of about 30 thousand. The issues concerned in this paper are: First of all, how the ethnic economy and the ethnic tourism therewith were formed in Huaxin Street? What are their identities in Taiwan’s society? Secondly, were the Chinese Burmese discouraged by a series of activities sponsored by local government, such as the Songkran festival and “enery town has its own uniqueness” policy, in transforming the region into a "Nanyang Tourism Cuisine Street" as an enclave of Thai-Burmese flavor, which, they were afraid, could have lost authenticity in terms of Chinese culture? And lastly, in this context, how the local tourists, most of whom are Chinese as well, will imagine the Burmese community there from their gaze? The study will do some survey on tourists of the E-generation. The expected result is that the young cohort would be more interested in the exotic symbols of Southeast Asian “Chinese heritage" and cuisine culture through their sightseeing experiences. They may also recognize that even though the Chinese Burmese seemed having well integrated into Taiwan’s society, they could still be excluded from the mainstream. Overall, interactions of the three social roles in this paper have shaped the ethnic image of Huaxin Street, which could be embedded with political, social and economic values in the process of tourist gaze.
