Taipei 2012 - Taipei Expo Park
Taipei hosted the International Floral Exposition from November 2012 tp April 2011. It was a big International event with participation from US, Japan, the Netherlands, Greece, Thailand, etc. After the Exposition, some of the buildings had been retained as permanent exhibits open to the public.
The Park itself is quite huge and divided into several sections. The Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art is right in the middle of it, and other buildings are quite spread out over the huge Site.
We visited one corner of the Park called the Xinshen Park. You can still see the gardens which were created for the Expo. Some of the buildings are beginning to look a bit run down. Overall the architecture is not as exciting as the World Expo - the focus here is more on the garden and landscape.
Some of the floral exhibits are quite interesting.
We visited one of the Pavillions called The Pavillion of the Future. Frankly the content was a bit lacklustre as I can’t even remember what we saw. The Taipei Expo Park is worth a visit if you have the time - but if you don’t you can safely give it a miss.
