Shanghai Expo 2010

With a few hours before going to the airport to fly to Taiyuan, we decided to take a look at the beautiful city of Shanghai as we were curious to know a little more about the famous Expo 2010.
Expo 2010 will be held in Shanghai, China, and is a scheduled World Expo in the grand tradition of international fairs and expositions. The theme of the exposition will be "Better City – Better Life" and signifies Shanghai's new status in the 21st century as a major economic and cultural center. It is expected to generate the largest number of visitors in the history of world fairs in terms of gross numbers.

The Expo will take place from May 1 to October 31, 2010.

For the first time in history, the Shanghai 2010 Expo will feature a highly sophisticated online version called "Online Expo Shanghai."

Meanwhile we can share with you this short video and some pictures showing what the Fair will be:

Canada unveiled its national pavilion
design last January 22, 2008.

You can just imagine what that will be!
We drove through downtown
and saw hundred of huge crates for the construction
of the fair grounds and buildings – 24/7 Chinese style.
