From Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung of Taiwan, this study respectively selects one cultural and creative landmark that represents the city as the targets and explores tourists who have visited any of these landmarks in order to analyze the effects of characteristics, surroundings, and marketing activities of cultural and creative landmarks on the public’s perceived value and regional attraction. It also constructs a correlation model. After analyzing 578 valid questionnaires, this study realizes that surroundings are the most critical factor influencing people’s perceived value of cultural and creative landmarks and enhance a regional attraction; the second most critical factor is the effect of landmark characteristics. However, the impact of marketing activities is insignificant. It shows that people’ perception of the marketing activities of cultural and creative landmarks is low. Therefore, in the future the marketing activities of cultural and creative landmarks should come from the aspect of improvement.
