The Pavilion was build to host the Expo 2010. After that, the pavilion is used as a museum (China Art Museum). It is very beautiful because the architecture, landscaping and exhibits. Inside the museum there are many escalator stairs and places where you can have a quick lunch.

This place is worthy half a day if you have much time in Shanghai. But if you just have 1 or 2 days, it can be skipped coz it is really far from downtown of Shanghai (about one hour on the way). I got to see the display of modern arts, mostly paintings, and it was great to learn we... More

even this expo passed 4 years ago, than they have about 3 sides who still can visit (eq: China, Benz and Middle East). that's not to late to stopping by, and still a lot of tour to going this place. For me the Mercedes-Benz was a nice one, with a futuristic building like UFO plate. You can going to the... More

This was my reason for visiting china in 2010 was to see the world expo. I was frustrated with the unbelievable lines to see the major pavilions and by chance found out that if you were a foreigner you received preferential status to visit the china pavilion. After visiting the pavilion during my last days in china I realized there... More

The splendor of the 2010 expo will not last much longer, but for now there is still plenty you can go see here. Worth a visit for the beautiful walk by Huangpu river and to see some of the buildings still up.

We went to the area to find a particular destination and wandered throughout the expo area. You'd think it happened in 1910, not 2010... The buildings are mostly completely abandoned, including restaurants, metro stations, exhibition halls, and so on. Everything is fenced off or under construction, and it's all rusted and falling apart. Other than the new China art museum,... More

The place is just packed with people. You would have to wait hours to get in. Plus there is not much stuff there anymore, people moved some of the excellent stuff away.
