The 2010 World Expo in Shanghai Deemed to be the largest ever at 5.28 square
kilometres (the size of 1000 football pitches).
The budget was just under $40 billion – more than
the cost of staging the 2008 Olympics.
The theme is ‘Better City – Better Life’with a blue mascot, Haibao. More than 240 nations and international organisations
are there. Between 70 million visitors are
expected, which would make it the most visited
135 Countries in 3 days! Of the 160 countries represented at the Expo
2010 Shanghai, China, I managed to visit
135. With queues of up to 5 hours, it was
difficult to see many of the large country
pavilions. Of those that I saw, by far the
best and most innovative was the UK pavilion.
I also consider Netherlands and Indonesia
to be in the top 3.
