If you've never seen the rime in winter, visited the Changbai Mountains or Tianchi volcanic lake, or traveled in a 580km/h high-speed train, then you can have all these experiences at the Jilin Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo.

"The pavilion has a surrealist design which incorporates characteristics of Jilin's landscape," said Cong Hongxia, deputy secretary general of Jilin Government.

The facade of the Pavilion has a simulation of the forest-covered Changbai Mountains, made with sculptures, bright painting and a lighting system. A virtual Tianchi volcanic lake is presented with the use of visual aids and other multi-media techniques.

"The lively scroll painting of the mountain, the lake, and the forest and gardens showcases the unique landscape of the province," said Cong.

Economy

The Jilin Pavilion also promotes the economic achievements of the province.

As the cradle of China's auto industry, the First Automobile Works (FAW), based in Changchun, the capital city, has become the largest manufacturing and research center for automobiles in China.
