With lots of exhibits to take photographs with, kids love the slides and searching for the stamps to complete the card to exchange for souvenir. The paper steamboat with beef broth was nice and enough for 2 person to share. We took back the cutlery boxes and drink cartons (which can be recycled and used as lamp shades and piggy... More

I bought my family there. 2 boys aged 10 & 7. You need to pay entrance fee which i used it to offset our lunch bill. I suggest if you are going, have your meal in the restaurant. We had hot pot and we are amazed the utensils are made of paper material. Hotpot set meal 450 twd. The place... More

Almost didn't go to this place as I read that it is quite commercialized. But glad we did. Enjoyed walking through the cardboard exhibits; taking photos with everything cardboard. The tea set is served in a really cute cardboard 3-tier "plates" and drinks in cup-boards! The honey comb biscuits are a good buy and really yummy too. Worth a short... More

Find it very original and creative at this place with almost all exhibits made of carton. Many nice spots for photos shooting. Not a very big place in different themes which is very suitable for young kids. Mine especially crazed at the long pink slide for countless times! Highly recommended for family with young kids or adults appreciating local arts.... More

Personally found it a bit dusty and run down. It is interesting in a quaint sort of way but no loss if you skip it. The entire trip was viewing sculptures and other artworks made using cartons and they truly have some unique creations. Had more fun observing the captive squirrels near the center of the park than viewing the... More

Poorly maintained, dusty and dirty exhibits. Sand flies infested. Restaurant refused to serve me because I just want a drink. Drivers hangout at snack area, smoking and talking out very loudly. Not pleasant.

My favorite place during my trip in Taiwan. Very creative idea, lots of animals, architecture, artifacts that are beautifully and accurately duplicated using simple Carton paper. Lots of gift items can be bought here, but if you miss it, don't worry, there are other shops in Taipei and Taichung. You can also post greeting cards here. A must visit in... More

This whole place is make of paper, it's interesting to see how paper can be made to be a bag, which is waterproof and washable up to 200 times..

my 9 and 8 year old kids were truly amazed at the carton world. They had fun with the fast pink metal slide and the metal horses, yet it was fun and we spent 4 hours there enjoying. They played rocking horse, sword , shield, music boxes and pinball machine in the shop, which is all made of carton (which... More

I'm sure most of the people knows that all things are made from cartons. Even the restaurant tables, chairs and even the wall! Yet, i still feel amazing when I'm there personally. Had lunch there and the food is nice. The entrance ticket comes with an voucher of 100 bucks which can be use to offset the restaurant bill or... More
