The Department of International Tourism Management, Lanyang Campus, recently got together with local business to promote the beauty of the local Linmei environment. Linmei is a village situated in Chiao-Hsi City, Yilan. As part of the initiative, students from the Department filmed a 5-minute documentary on a breathtaking hiking trail that runs through Linmei. The film is now being used as a tourism promotional video by major businesses in the local Yilan region.
The Chair of the Department, Dr. Chien Mu Yeh, noted that the Department not only holds international-level events and iniatives, it also helps to promote the local environment, while allowing students to gain extra, real-life experience, and go beyond the limits of textbook-based teaching.
