The study aims to analyze and probe into the possible impacts brought by the image
transformation of Du-Shing 10th Village, a veteran community. We try to understand the
residents’ willingness to get involved and the feasibility of giving a brand new
appearance, “cultural park”, to Du-Shing 10th Village, and to promote the development
of cultural tourism in Penghu. In addition, we also consult the related authorities and
resident representatives for their ideas and opinions toward the development scheme of
At first, help the residents to understand the meaning of idle space reuse and the
significance of culture conservation. Then, explain the concept of transforming Du-Shing
10th Village into a cultural park to the residents and hopefully improve their willingness
to support and to participate in the project, or strengthen the tourists’ motivation to have a
cultural tour to Penghu. Multiple tourism types can meet different tourists’ needs. The
idea not only can connect with the surrounding tourist spots to solve the problem with
overcrowded tourists during the high season, it can also increase the re-visiting rate.
For the orientation of the future transformation scheme, strategic implementation of
sustainable development is one of the most important elements to sustain a local culture.
In addition, without a doubt, the cooperation of local government authority, the
conservation of the characteristic of a local culture and the feasibility of a scheme are all
indispensible factors to keep promoting a local culture’s development. The platform
created by Cultural Affairs Bureau and Tourism Bureau can also be leveraged to
propagate the culture of veteran communities to draw the attentions of tourism or travel
business operators, tourists and residents for the purpose of reaching the common interest,
promoting the development of cultural tourism, raising the willing of local residents to
get involved, boosting the economic effects of Penghu and; furthermore, ensuring the
sustainable development of the offshore cultural tourism.
