2010 World Expo (Shanghai, China)

My friend Feizi invited me to visit her in Shanghai, China where she lives but she said: “Come 2010 when the World Expo will be held. Right now, there are dust and mess from the constructions for the expo…”

I remember thinking that it must be some significant event to warrant such constructions. That was the last time I thought about it till I stumbled across its website today. No wonder, it is the prestigious World Expo debuted in Hyde Park, London in 1851, “the third largest event in the world in terms of economic and cultural impact, after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games”.

From its website, it sure looks like Shanghai is making an investment due to such an event and the Pavilions built for the event reminds one of Beijing Olympic last year. Check out its website at: http://en.expo2010china.com/.

If you are going, it is definitely worthy making it part of your visit. Or maybe it is just the right perk that would send you on your way to China next year.
