Hong Kong is actively developing ecotourism through its Global Geopark. A case study of the Geopark site on Tung Ping Chau, completed in conjunction with Dr. Hui Lai Hang Dennis and the Hong Kong Institute of Education, reveals that ineffective public consultation has led to frustration and skepticism among stakeholders regarding the future development of ecotourism. As a result of this case study, recommendations are made that might offer a more sustainable future for ecotourism on Tung Ping Chau with broader implications in Hong Kong.
