  12. 12. Take Aways Primary functionalities of available smart phone technologies for tourists are certainly  Offering solutions for travelers & businesses which cater to travel needs BEFORE, DURING and AFTER trips - the implemented VZ Taiwan Platform.  Taking photos of highlights of scenic areas and sites, AND NOT necessarily  High level, natural/cultural feature interpretation!
  13. 13. Take Aways (continued)  Outdoor scenic areas are not museums and interpretation technologies used in museums may not always work in an outdoor setting.  Pilot projects need to be carefully undertaken to determine how digital technologies can best work for functionalities beyond sophisticated tour planning.  The Australian tourism industry needs to understand that visiting tourists from North Asia are now accustomed to a digital platform which is currently unavailable in Australia.
  14. 14. And From Mainland China  The country’s online payment system, Alipay and the universal use of QR Codes has provided Chinese consumers with a payments functionality which has leap- frogged payment card based systems and positions China as a technology leader in consumer e-commerce.  Chinese tourists will be looking to access information and services through their smartphones using the QR code system.
