Shanghai 2010 Expo will be Amazing…


For those of you that do not know… This year China will be doing it big.. much bigger than the Olympics… bigger than the Three Gorges Dam… This will be Amazing…

Basically… every country in the world… (well big country that is) will have their own Pavillion that represents the culture and style of that country.  This will be huge…. The China pavillion is amazing.. so far …

There will be so much to see that the actually expo will be from May 1st to October 31st this year, 180 days of excitement.   I will be right there in the middle of the mess… (smile) …

This is a one in a life time experience and of course China wants to make a statement so they will go bigger and better than any other host country has ever done.

The theme of the Expo this year is ” A Better City, Better Life”

:Blending of diverse cultures in the city, Economic prosperity in the city, Innovation of science and technology in the city, Remodeling of communities in the city, Rural-urban Interaction Goal:To attract the participation of 200 countries and international organizations and 70 million visitors.

Incredible… you have to give it to China when they do something…they really want you to remember it.

I was looking at some of the pavillions from some of the other country they are unbelievable.

Taiwan Pavilion

Spain Pavilion

Fujian Pavilion

Japan Pavilion


Hunan Pavilion

Danish Pavilion

Malaysia Pavilion

Brazil Pavilion

German Pavilion

Poland Pavilion

Thailand Pavilion

Canada Pavilion

Hong Kong Pavilion

UK Pavilion

I am quite disappointed with our USA pavilion….We are the greatest country in the world.  The only world superpower and have invented almost everything in the world and THIS is what we come up with as a representation of America????

US Pavilion

I feel a little bit embarassed.  We have some of the worlds best designers and this is all they could come up with…. Even the small pitiful countries have better pavilions.

There are many, many other pavilions that will be there and you can see them all on the Shanghai Expo Website

    I browsed some of the extraordinary pavilions last month and will view more this week. I tried to view the opening ceremony on that day, yet to no avail. That’s okay, viewing the expo layout was very interesting, especially from the aerial to the 3-D views of the pavilions! Even the U.S. Pavilion aerial shot was unexpectedly nice! Be Continuously Blessed!

    1. I have my tickets to go.. .My husband and I and a couple of friends will be going next month. We think it has calmed down a little and we only have to fight a few thousand people not millions..(smile)

    I’ve been searching for roundtrip tickets online from the states and have been defeated everything over a thousand dollars

    1. Right now it is very, very difficult to get the visas to come to China. The Chinese government is limiting how many people can be here and from certain countries. I suggest you wait until later in the expo the first few weeks will be very expensive and difficult.

    AMAZINGLY Beautiful! They really know how to go all out! The designs and colors would definitely leave me ahhhing and ooooing for a very long time. I’m partial to parades, as my mother loved them (all kinds). We went to every holiday hosted parade in our city, up until my adulthood! Yes, including St. Pat’s Day! LOL! I even marched in some parades with my mother and siblings waving from the sideline.

    Another favorite would be the martial arts show. The martial arts movements to music is the ultimate, to me! It’s like visual poetry!

    I’m so looking forward to watching it online. Especially, the opening ceremony. I totally agree with you about the US Pavilion. It’s lacking pizzazz and is sparse in creativity! It’s so true (what you said) that almost everything in the world was invented here. In my opinion, this is best representation of those that presented it, can do. The reason being, when they continually wall the people who’s ancestors did most of the inventing, a people who are still very much creative and inventive, this is what they get! RLOL!!!! That’s just my view!

    After the Shanghai Expo, will the pavilions remain? They’re each like a visual embassy. I’m anticipating the actual day! Thank you so very much for sharing!

    1. I don’t think they will stay.. I know the one main pavilion for Shanghai will stay up.. but the ones from all the other countries will only stay for the 180 days… then they will be gone… a lot of money they are spending on this…
