In the 2005 amendment of the "Cultural Heritage Preservation Law", the item "cultural landscape" and its categories have been clearly defined. The cultural landscape is defined as "the result of human interaction with nature", which reflects the long-term development and relationship between the residents and the environment. Currently, the scope of the cultural landscape and village and its associated classifications have been clearly defined, but the focus is often placed on the "structures and ancillary facilities". It means the scope of living and production in the villages, as well as the local cultures and customs, have not yet been seen as an integral part of the cultural landscape in the preservation works.
Wugoushui in Wanluan Township, Pingtung County, is a Hakka settlement that migrated from Jiaying Prefecture of Guangdong Province in the Kangxi Period of the Qing Dynasty. Its development is closely related to the history of the Wanluan area and perhaps even the whole Hakka cluster in southern Taiwan, which is often referred to as the Liudui settlement. With a special landscape and well-preserved architecture, the Pingtung County Government officially registered and announced Wugoushui as the first Hakka village cultural heritage in Taiwan on May 19th 2008. This action was taken as an initiative to evoke cultural awareness and identification through preservation and reuse of the village’s living spaces, and the target is to encourage the residents’ participation in the preservation and maintenance work of the local cultural industry. Wugoushui was certified as a cultural heritage for three reasons: 1. Its historic context and development has high preservation value. 2. The overall environment is highly characteristic in the context of the local culture. 3. The Hakka architecture has high artistic value.
