Welcome To Rabbit Pavilion



Picture Courtesy: Shanghaidaily

It is the Macau Pavilion, which was recently unveiled at Shanghai World Expo. The shape of the pavilion is a jade rabbit lantern and it will change colors to present a mythological world. The designers of this beautiful pavilion got inspiration from rabbit lanterns popular during the Mid-autumn Festival in south China in ancient times. In a bid to attract visitors, balloons will serve as the head and tail of the rabbit. It has been decided that every visitor to this site will get a rabbit lantern.

Haha, how cute - "balloons will serve as the head and tail of the rabbit". As a big fan of baloons, I appreciate this idea :)
