Comment and Question[edit]

Hello, I'm in Taipei right now and I need some information on the Flora Expo, such as:


Is it a yearly event?

Where is the location of the EXPO Dome?

Are there any attractions near the EXPO Dome?

Is it true that there is an MRT line to the Flora Expo?


If you can answer these questions, please type the answer in italics next to the question. Thank you and I appreciate your help. Also, can you show me some redirections to other sites about this event? Please write them in the below space in italics.

This isn't really the place for travel info, but I would suggest you check out the Flora Expo site for visitor info: [1] It is a yearly event, but occurs in different cities worldwide. And yes, it is MRT accessible. Have fun! -Multivariable (talk) 09:06, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

BIE Recognised?[edit]

Is this expo recognised by the BIE? I note that the introduction includes a citation, but the cited page mentions the AIPH, but not BIE :-(

And the BIE's own webpage for horticultural expos: http://www.bie-paris.org/site/en/expos/horticultural-exhibition.html doesn't include it.

Doesn't look like it's sourced either. A search on the BIE site turns up nothing. I went ahead and removed it and added a citation for something else. -Multivariable (talk) 18:18, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
The BIE recognition might have resulted from the same system of expo classification that the BIE uses. The following editorial states that the expo is recognized by both the AIPH and the BIE, though I would like to see more reliable sources. [2] -Multivariable (talk) 18:23, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
