August 2010 Day 3 (Part 3) 台中 – 紙箱王 (Taichung Carton King)

Our next destination was 紙箱王創意園區 (Carton King).   The entrance fee was 100twn, however, we could redeem with any purchase (eg. DIY kit or food).

The theme of Carton King was paper creativity.  There were 4 sections – 蜜蜂故事二號館、紙箱故事館、包裝故事館 and a restaurant.  This page got lot of pictures so please be patient.

There was a big outdoor green lawn where there were several paper art works like ‘Leaning Tower of Pisa’ (7.2m tall), Eiffel Tower, Windmill and etc.  These were made of special paper that can withstand rain.

You could buy the DIY miniature paper art work as souvenirs – nicely packed in box.  Some also came with the led light.  They came in various sizes – miniature or big and not too expensive.  (Small ones range from 150twn onwards)

紙箱故事館 – there was also a DIY area where kids and parents could buy DIY kit and assemble into finished products.

In fact, you would be amazed that the paper could be made into bags, hats, furniture.
