This site is huge, housing the former expo of Shanghai. While the size is impressive, there is not much to see and do as most areas are not accessible to the public.

Very nice experience through the pavillon that represented China during expo 2010. What impressed me most was the building architecture itself.

I loved this place. visited it during expo 2010 :D At that time I was still 13 years old, and in order to see this place I was in a line for 5 hours... Well I don't remember exactly what is inside, but I remember I was super excited even after those long 5 hours of queueing!!!

Unforgettable experience, especially through the eyes of this culture. The walks are long but well worth the effort. Prepare for a long day, but even longer memories.

Great place to visit, the expo park and museum its ha massive domain full of buildings and attractions. The entrance its madness and you basically feel like cattle but after that its okay. In most of the places you need to queue for a while and in other you need to get your tickets in advance. Get your info right... More

I had attended a Exhibition on Plastics at the Shanghai Expo Mall, i found it better then the one in Gangzhou. Absolutely stunning place with Metro Station at walking Distance. Huge area which gives enough space for exhibitors to showcase theire products.

It's been a real pleasure walking around the museum (now it is called Art Museum Shanghai) as well as inside the museum. One can spend half a day easily inside the museum, taking a lift to the 12th storey and walking down to the ground level. There is a range of permanent exhibitions and temporary ones. I have viewed the... More
