This spot is another one of the 11 oases being set up across Montreal as part of the new Les aventures du cœur de l'île project.

According to Quartier des Spectacles, Place des Souhaits is a "new intergenerational space designed by Karen Tam and Jean de Lessard celebrates the tangible and intangible of Chinese culture."

The 1,000 colored flags found hung up all over this oasis are "inspired by traditional Cantonese operas."
