Flora expo venues will be reopened soon: organizers

Staff Writer, with CNA

Most of the venues used in the Taipei International Flora Expo, which closed on April 25, will reopen to the public soon after some remodeling, the expo organizers said yesterday.

REMODELED

The remodeled sites will be called “Flora Park” and will comprise three of the most popular expo venues — the Pavilion of the Future, the Pavilion of Dreams and the Pavilion of Angel Life, organizers said.

The park will be open to the public in the middle of July.

EXHIBITIONS REMAIN

The exhibitions at the pavilions will remain the same and an entry fee of NT$100 will be charged for each visitor, the organizers said. Alternatively, a combo ticket for all the pavilions can be obtained for NT$150, they said.

Meanwhile, a Taiwan Pavilion that was relocated from last year’s Shanghai World Expo will open on the second floor of the Pavilion of Future in September, the organizers said.

OUT OF FASHION

Except for the Pavilion of New Fashion, which is owned by the Far Eastern Group and will be removed from the Flora Park in August, all the other pavilions will be used by the Taipei City Government for various purposes, the organizers said.

The Expo Dome, for example, is being used as the venue for a five-day Taipei Top Chef Competition that began yesterday, the organizers said.

BUSES

Most of the free shuttle buses that served the expo routes will be pulled from service, the organizers said, but the original Expo Bus Line 1 route will continue regular services as the renamed Red 50.
