As a means of communication and transportation in the past or even today, cultural routes organically connect many cultural-related kinds of monument, sites, and natural and cultural landscapes in linear systems and within a much broader overall setting. Besides, just like that in the past, there still are many people with characteristic culture living here today. Therefore, the cultural consistency and diversity involved in cultural routes and their setting should be attached particular importance to in the protection, management, and development of cultural heritage so that the historical information and cultural memories can be preserved for our present and the future generation. Furthermore, concerning the cultural consistency and diversity protection of cultural routes and their setting, the cultural cognition of people living or visiting here, as well as the space and time in which they develop, are to be thought over, and so it comes to the public participation, community involvement, interpretation and presentation, proper utilization,education, and etc. which will benefit the conservetion and sustaialility of cultural routes in their settings.
