Critical Commentary

In the meantime, several places interfered by TEEF such as Ba-yien village (八煙聚落) have become visible to the mass media and tourists. However, beneath the promising management concepts, the exposure effect caused a subsequent dissenting voice from residents of Ba-yien and Yangmingshan National Park Headquarters (陽管處). The residents of Ba-yien could not tolerate the behavior of tourists and their use of facilities that resulted in noise and pollution. Furthermore, they accused the new business of bringing disputes of interest to their village and seriously damaging the unity of the lineage. Despite TEEF’s efforts, a potential ideal model of Satoyama in Taiwan finally turned out to be a village that refused to cooperate with outsiders.
