The 2010 Taipei International Flora Expo is just around the corner.
The Taipei City Government is inviting internet users to get a glimpse of the expo online before it opens on Saturday.
A spokeswoman for the expo, Ma Chien-hui, said on Wednesday that virtual tours of each of the expo’s 14 pavilions are available online. Those include newly added tours for the Pavilion of Dreams, the EXPO Theater and the EXPO Hall.
“Web users can take a virtual tour of the 14 pavilions. The tour includes an environmentally friendly structure at Xinsheng Park, the world’s biggest wall featuring the drawings of [well-known Taiwanese artist] Jimmy, the Pavilion of New Fashion made from PE bottles and the British-styled Taipei Story House. People can visit our website to learn more about the pavilions they plan to visit so that they can get a feel of [what they're like],” said Ma.
The virtual tour was shot on location at the expo. With the click of a mouse, web users are given either a daytime or nighttime view of the venues of the upcoming Flora Expo. The virtual tours give visitors a panoramic view of the expo and close-up shots as well.
