Taiwan 8D7N Free & Easy Tour - Carton King Creativity Park @ Taichung (紙箱王創意園區)

Carton King (紙箱王) has built its reputation over the years with outlets around different districts in Taiwan and even China. As the name implies, cartons/corrugated cardboard are transformed creatively into beautiful artworks that you cannot even imagine! From animal sculptures, flowers to architectures and even furniture and dining equipment that you can actually sit/use!

While there are branches in Cingjing and Kaoshiong, the original shop at Dakeng, Taichung City is a must to visit. Upon entering Carton King, we headed straight to the Carton Zoo.

Along the way we spotted flowers, birds and Dracula.

Right after exiting Carton King Zoo, we spotted a zone where visitors can soak their feet in the cooling waters. Quite fun for the children to pump out the water and we can sit down to relax for a bit before moving on.

How we wish we can have these large size Star Wars figurines! Nice display to welcome guests at the entrance. ^_^

If you are feeling thirsty or hungry, there are a few dining areas in the park for you to fill your tummy. What uniquely distinguish Carton King from other restaurants is the furniture are made of corrugated cardboard! Don't worry about your weight or fear that they are unsafe to sit on as my hubby who is over 100kg pass the seat test. Due to time constraint, we did not dine at the Taichung outlet, but we will share our dining experience at the Cingjing branch.

It is a pretty sight around Carton King. Even the exterior of the building look so fairytale and enchanted.

We bought some honey at the Honey Museum and there are some live bees there too.

Seems like we cannot run away from mosquito no matter where we are. 

There is a small garden where you can take pictures with windmill, Eiffel Tower and clock tower. These famous landmarks are made of cardboard too. 

Before leaving Carton King, we have to visit the souvenir shops. There are so many interesting things that I have to resist myself from over buying (especially at the start of our trip).

Oh! Hold on to your entrance tickets too and complete the stamps at designated areas which will earn you a chance to redeem a free paper toy car.


Opening Hours and Admission Fee information 

As there are many places that we had to head to, hence we only managed to spend about 1.5 hour at Carton King. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves and it was an eye opener to see how papers and cardboard can be used creatively.
