Taiwan to host International Flora Exposition
October 19, 2010
This November the 2010 International Flora Exposition will be held in Taipei, Taiwan. The theme of the show will be Rivers, Flowers, New Horizons, according to ETravelBlackboard.com.
The exposition, which is expected to promote floriculture in Taiwan as well as environmentally friendly initiatives, will last five months, starting November 6. Taiwanese officials consider this a chance to reveal local gardening talent and the country's biotechnological progress over the past few years.
Covering 92 hectars of urban parkland, the festival will include site plans and designs for urban renewal concepts, in addition to a plethora of tropical flowers and
Taipei's city government views the exposition as more than a transformation of the city, and hopes it will "inspire visitors and locals alike to embrace new ideas and implement green practices for themselves," Hau Lung-Bin, Mayor of Taipei, told ETravelBlackboard.com.
Taiwain is currently hard at work to upgrade the city and transform Taipei into a city of gardens. Among the tour sites included in the expo are the Sea of Flowers, the
Tunnel and the Flower Labyrinth. A total of 22 cultural and historic attractions linked by shuttle buses will be featured, each with 22 different
kinds of flowers
arranged according to symbolic meaning. For instance, the Taipei Cinema Park which has a coffee garden, will feature coffee flowers.
The exposition experienced a slight setback in its arrangements in the aftermath of the Typhoon Fanaip which occurred September 20. However, preparation works minimized the impact of the disaster on the exposition.
Mayor Lung-Bin expects more than 2,000 visitors per day to view the Pavilion of Dreams, which will include digital flowers designed by Asustek Computer. The Asustek Florabots are programmed to move to music and light and are equipped with motion sensors to detect an approaching person, according to PCWorld.com.
A film called "Taiwan, Face the Truth" which reveals the devastation that natural disasters bring to Taiwan's mountain vistas, will run 23 times each day during the exposition. The movie depicts the consequences of human development without restraint.
The event is the first internationally recognized exposition to take place in Taipei city, and the seventh of its kind to take place in Asia. A warm-up for the exposition occurred during weekend of October 7, when participants were taken on floral tour to see dozens of sites.
Among the many flowers featured at the exposition will be morning glories, wishbone flowers, maidenhairs and dahlia pinnatas. Those who cannot attend the event may want to purchase an online bouquet of these flowers, to bring the celebration home.
