Tourism is an indispensable recreation in modern times. However, it is closely linked to the issues of high energy consumption, pollution and excess waste of resources in the dimensions of transport, lodging, dinning and fun. For Taipingshan Forest Recreation Area and Taipingshan Villa, the issue of environment responsibility is the one which cannot be neglected.

Taipingshan Villa at Taipingshan Forest Recreation Area has promoted the concept of ecotourism for many years and, in 2013, passed the EPA’s ”Hotel Green Mark Standards” on energy saving, carbon reduction, water saving, recycle of waste water, fume extraction, odor elimination, noise and green procurement.
