The Pavilion of Dreams is a very unique feature of the ongoing Taipei Flora Expo. Without one real plant or blossom, the pavilion is attracting the greatest number of visitors. Let's find out why.

Since its opening day, the Pavilion of Dreams has surely been one of the top attractions at the Flora expo.

Huge mechanical flowers, stretching from the roof top, blossom along with the music and lighting changes, ushering visitors into a dreamlike world. And a paper forest showcases the advanced information, interactive and sensor technologies.

The plants on every 3D screen vary in shape and color, and can grow up and blossom according to your hand gestures.
