Critical Commentary

ln the meantime, several places interfered by TEEF like Ba-yien village (八煙聚落) has become visible to mass media and tourist. However, beneath the promising concepts of management is exposure effect gave rise to subsequent dissenting voice from resident in Ba-yien and Yangmingshan National Park Headquarters (陽管處). Resident in Ba-yien could not tolerate the behavior of tourists and their use of facilities which resulted in noise and pollution. Furthermore, they accused that the new business brought disputes of interest to their village and seriously damaged the unity of the lineage. To TEEF’s frustration, a potential ideal model of Satoyama in Taiwan finally turned out to be a village that refused to cooperate with outsiders.
