Carton King Creativity Park allows you to witness paper's infinite creative uses, and is separated into three sections--Restaurant, Honey Museum No. 3, and Carton King--and decorated with paper-made toys, from little trains to factories. The softly-lit Carton King section offers not only your usual paper products, but also paper hats and bags made from leather-like paper. The Honey Museum offers a peek at the busy lives of bees, providing various honey-related products such as Honey Vinegar Jello, Handmade Honey Pork Jerky and the Honey Rolls Gift--a box of these honey-flavored sweets is just NT$160 (buy three and get a fourth free). The restaurant offers a 2-5 p.m. afternoon tea and 8:30-10 p.m. evening tea with NT$40-80 desserts and NT$80-160 drinks. You can also order NT$260 sets with honey-flavored beverages and desserts, cheese cake and cookies. Plus, the Creative Park features an outdoor stage with live performances by The Face Two band from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. --By Lishea Zheng, translated by Naomi Lai
