    AL WASL PLAZA
    (The beating heart of EXPO 2020 as well as the Expo City Dubai)

    Although EXPO 2020 is over, the Al Wasl Plaza is still alive and kicking with its jaw dropping visual shows every night (except for Mondays and Tuesdays).
    The projectors come alive in the evenings, with 4 shows per night, from Wednesday to Sunday. The first show starts at 6.15 pm, coinciding with the Magrib call to prayer, which is the Expo City Dubai’s way of transitioning the dome from its day mode to night mode. The last show is held at 11 pm.
    Since there are no longer EXPO 2020 crowds, the dome interior has been converted to a casually relaxing lounging area with many benches, fountains and greenery to provide comfort while enjoying these free soothing shows.
    I cannot recommend enough to all the Tourists as well as to those who visited EXPO 2020 already, as these shows never get old!

  5. Moving around Expo City has been made so easy and fast by these Expo Taxi’s. Making it easy to move from one pavilion to another and any destination whatsoever inside the Expo City. The drivers are very kind and friendly and are ready to answer any questions about the place. The taxi can hold up to 6 people incase you’re visiting in a group.




  6. Highly recommend visiting Expo City while in Dubai, its incredibly beautiful, several pavilions are open, Women’s pavilion being my favorite so far. Several cafe’s open for refreshments making your visit better. Less traffic than experienced during expo. The weather at the moment is perfect for a days visit.
    Charges are:
    50 Aed to visit one pavilion
    100 Aed to visit two pavilions
    120 Aed to visit all pavilions

    Three new attractions for visitors!

    Three new exhibitions were unveiled on Wednesday at Expo City Dubai, aimed at drawing crowds back to relive their memories of the world's fair.

    The pavilions, called the Stories of Nations, are spread across the three districts within the site ? Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

    Visitors can explore memorabilia that includes sculptures, musical instruments and digital exhibits from more than 200 nations and organisations that took part in the six-month Expo 2020 Dubai.

    The displays vary from showcasing wooden poles used in the Swedish pavilion, replicas of the swings that visitors used in the German pavilion to a large colourful model of a turtle from the Comoros island made from recycled plastic bags in the sustainability section exhibits.

    A massive circular wooden seat built from pine wood is a memory from the Austrian pavilion, a richly decorated cart with red and green sequins from Myanmar and a harp from Columbia are part of the opportunity exhibition.

    Entry to the new attractions is included in Expo City Dubai’s Dh120 one-day attractions pass, which also gives visitors access to the Alif - The Mobility Pavilion , Terra - The Sustainability Pavilion, as well as the Vision and Women’s pavilions.

    Expo enthusiasts can also purchase a ticket specifically for Stories of Nations for Dh50 for entry to the three new attractions.

    Expo City Dubai was the hub of excitement as it launched the Chinese New Year festivities with a colorful carnival. This year, the Chinese New Year fell on January 22nd and Expo City marked the occasion in grand style.

    The National News reported that the carnival was a showcase of both traditional and modern elements of Chinese culture. Visitors were treated to dragon and lion dances, cultural performances, traditional food stalls, and stunning red lantern displays. These festivities aimed to bring good luck, wealth, and happiness for the new year.

    Visitors were able to fully immerse themselves in the rich culture of China and gain a deeper understanding of its history and traditions. The carnival also highlighted modern advancements in technology and innovation, reflecting the theme of the event, “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”.

    WAM stated that Expo City Dubai was the perfect place to experience the spirit of the Chinese New Year, with its unique combination of cultural heritage and modern advancements. The carnival attracted a large crowd and was a memorable experience for all who attended.

    Those who were lucky enough to attend the Chinese New Year celebration at Expo City Dubai were treated to a carnival filled with good luck, happiness, and the spirit of the Chinese New Year. It was an opportunity not to be missed.
