We went here in April 2013. It was during dry season, and clearly it was out of season for the expo as well. There wasn't much to see considering the high admission fee.

As we were nearby. Had a briefed stop at the site of the Expo 1999. Beautifully touched up after so many years. The pavilions were interesting. And the flowers a sight to behold. Except for the hot weather. The trip was enjoyable.
