There are several things visitors shouldn't miss while visiting Zhouzhuang, an iconic water town in East China's Jiangsu province, that is Shen House, a sculling boat, Wansan pork shank and granny tea.

But at the Carton King Creativity Park in the water town, all these things are made out of corrugated paper.

In the paper-made Shen House stands a large paper carving of Shen Wansan, a legendary businessman during the early Ming Dynasty and was the first ever millionaire to live in Jiangnan, the region around the south Yangtze River delta encompassing cities such as Nanjing, Shanghai and Hangzhou.

"Memory of Hometown", which depicted the Twin Bridges, by notable painter, Chen Yifei, has been transformed into a 3D paper carving in the park.

In a paper-made zoo, children could play with lions, tigers, giraffes, boars and monkeys. Delicious Wansan pork shanks have been put inside the boxes in shape of a smiling pig face.

All the tables and chairs in the themed restaurant are made of paper. Through the paper curtain, visitors are also able to see several world famous architectures in the 3D paper carving.

In addition to exploring a world of paper, visitors are also able to create windmills with their own hands at the park, as a windmill-themed tourism festival is current underway in Zhouzhuang, enabling visitors to rediscover childhood joy.

Besides windmill DIY, the genuine Taiwan dishes served in Carton King are also set to tantalize many a buds, including Taiwan beef noodles and baked chicken with spices.
