Tao Residents' Perceptions of Social and Cultural Impacts of Tourism in Lan-Yu, Taiwan
Tourism, often referred to as the world's largest industry, impacts the residents of local communities. Festivals and events are often used as tools of tourism development by local governments. However, prior to developing a new festival, the first step is to conduct an assessment of how locals perceive the current level of social and cultural impacts in a community. This study examined the perceived social and cultural impacts of tourism development in Lan-Yu, Taiwan. The findings suggest that the local residents support tourism. Further this would be an appropriate location to develop a cultural festival.
