Tourism provides new opportunities for the development of ancient villages. Meanwhile, in the process of village development, the unsustainable characteristics are gradually emerging. This paper takes the improvement of Pingshan Village tourism format quality as an example to explore the sustainable development of Huizhou Traditional Ancient Village Tourism to achieve a win-win situation between tourism development and ancient village development. Following the sustainable development principle, through on-the-spot investigation, this paper explored tourism format types, spatial distribution characteristics and combination forms of tourism industry, forming basic data, which was analyzed based on the function number theory. The result shows some such problems as unreasonable distribution of business format, serious homogenization, etc have existed. On this basis, the space syntax theory was used to analyze the integration and comprehensibility of the village. The results show that the overall spatial integration of the village is good, but the comprehensibility is low. In the future business format layout, different types of business format should be combined properly, and public service industry format such as museums and exhibition halls should be arranged in Skylight Lane to enhance the settlement identity.
