To the delight of its commuters, Taiwan’s capital city Taipei now operates a “forest bus,” which is a traveling art installation with moss-covered seats, interiors all draped in lush, fragrant plants and flowers, treating the riders to a charming escapade to nature whilst on busy, noisy city roads.

Florist Alfie Lin, who conceptualized this “mobile jungle,” says he wanted to add a touch of nature to commuters’ busy routines, writes Tree Hugger.

The forest bus takes the riders through the bustling city routes with stoppages at an art museum, a popular temple and a night market, notes Elsewhere.
