Rapid-developing tourism is flourishing hotel industry in recent years. Local hotels and homestays start to run their own nature feature tours, attempting to satisfy tourists eager to get close to nature. Ocean tour is the main attraction in Penghu tourism. Therefore, hotels and homestays play important roles when tourists come close to the ocean.

The headquarters not only mentioned about the foundation of the park, but also showed the feature attractions and precautions before entering the park. The information is provided for hotel and homestay owners to give to visitors before entering. Afterwards, Zhong-xing Chen commented on “How the Internet affects ocean featured activities and marketing”and“Sustainable tourism: achieving eco-friendly ocean tour,”expecting owners to have proper value on marketing.
