Taiwan created a unique tourist attraction: a commuter bus converted into a “forest” full of greenery and flowers. The bus is currently traveling around Taipei, giving passengers a ride on moss-covered seats. It’s become an Instagram sensation thanks to the lush surroundings inside.
The forest bus is a welcome alternative to a commute usually packed with people — not plants. The bus is running through an area of the city packed with tourists thanks to its major museums, but it’s also a welcome sight for downtown workers, too. The bus is a temporary installation, but residents are hoping its popularity will propel the city to make it permanent.
Local florist Alfie Lin packed the bus with moss, orchids, ginger lilies and more. “They can smell the scent of summer on the bus and see the vibrant green plants to feel messages from nature,” he told Agence France-Presse.

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.
One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.
