|Abstract: ||Abstract: Lifestyles are changing and Taiwanese people are increasingly concerned about enjoying quality leisure activities; short distance tourism is especially popular. Thus, urban–rural fringes and townships featuring natural ecosystems have automatically become recreational hotspots. The Wulai District is located at the fringe of the Taipei metropolitan area; the district has become a major recreational location, and the number of tourists has rapidly increased. To satisfy tourist demands, businesses have diligently created recreational environments featuring various characteristics. To prevent altering the natural environmental, fringe townships must be reconstructed based on ecocity concepts and methods. Thus, tourists’ cognitive, emotional, and overall impressions of the Wulai District are integrated into the local ecological environment.
Through the ecocity concept and the construction of environmental systems, recommendations for transforming the Wulai District into a major tourist attraction are provided in this study. The recommendations include reconstructing landscapes and developing tourism, fulfilling tourist demands, fulfilling the living space requirements of the local residents, reducing the influences associated with tourist development, fulfilling pedestrian, transportation, and parking requirements, integrating local open spaces through systematic and quality planning, preserving and maintaining local historical landscapes, constructing exceptional streets and urban landscapes, and linking neighboring attractions to effectively integrate tourism resources.
