“So cool”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I never wrote the review when I went in 2010, so this is a little late and outdated. However, the Expo was magnificent. Just HUGE. It was so much fun to go around to every different countries building and see what they had to offer. Weather it was a projection, movie, interactive games, food, DJ, or other shows, it was awesome. If you ever get a chance to go to a World Expo, I would definitely go. I don't, however, know how it is now, since the expo is obviously over.

“Don't miss the along the river at qingming festival exhibit”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The building is very impressive and the along the river at qingming festival display is amazing. The museum is huge but some parts are more attractive than others. The tricky thing is the need to register in advance on internet, via a website that is only in Mandarin...

“Nothing Like It”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I had never been to a World Expo before but I thoroughly enjoyed this event. The number of countries represented were mind boggling and we were mesmerized by the varied country pavilions. The only unfortunate thing was that some were so crowded it was not worth the wait. Also, queues in China are not particularly well organized and respected so that provided some stress on occasion. But overall, it was a unique experience I am not sure we will ever duplicate.

“Very large, lots of walking!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

It is quite a way out of the centre and a great shame that all around it is being taken down. This Pavilion is quite a sight and full of Chinese Art. Many rooms but not well signposted in English and it was difficult to know where the lifts were located. Large rooms of large paintings and an interesting afternoon in Shanghai.

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

China pavilion is no doubt the most spectacularest sights for its constructure so different and its scale bigger than any other pavillions. However, spending 3-4 hours just for look maybe a tiring thing. So we always will prepare a taboret when it is needed.
