Excited about Expo 2020? The world’s greatest show is officially open. Everyone is excited to see what’s on display at the pavilions. Imagine the plight of children. They are busy re-watching the opening ceremony and humming the official anthem. They are already scouring the internet to read new updates and making a mental note to cover every single inch of the pavilion. We have covered the list of activities and places you could visit with your family and kids to have unlimited fun in this post.
Getting 192 Passport Stamps in One Place
It is a profound dream for many travel buffs to get their passports stamped by all the nations in the world, and it indeed is an achievement. If you’re already on the path, our wholehearted wishes to you.
The Expo 2020 offers a unique opportunity to do something similar with your family and kids. Pick up your Expo passports and visit as many pavilions as possible. The good news is you have 6 months to get all the 192 stamps on your passport. It could result in a great memory and a stamped passport you’d cherish all your life.
The Best Panoramic View
Hands down, the best panoramic view in the whole Expo 2020 is at the Sky Observation Tower. The Garden built at the height of 55 meters offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the entire expo site.
A gentle warning to the acrophobes though.
Slide Down to the Forest
Luxembourg is among one of the smallest nations in the world, is the only pavilion that features a slide. Even though the transparent 21-meters high slide is fun to ride, there is a deeper message inside the fun.
The slide ends at the Luxembourg pavilion’s central atrium, which features the green, woody space that reminds the nation’s beautiful forest cover. It evokes the importance of leaving the green to the generations to come.
P.S.: This is the slide where even adults can have all the fun!!!
Pose in a Spacesuit
Hazza Al Mansouri doesn’t need an introduction. The first Emirati astronaut going to space is an inspiration to the kids dreaming about space, stars, and beyond. The UAE’s youngest F-16 fighter pilot’s spacesuit is displayed at Expo 2020. When the visitors stand in front of the suit, their faces will be projected onto the astronaut’s helmet.
It’d be a great motivation to young kids who are seriously thinking about astronomy as their career.
Pillow Fort – Reviving Childhood’s Fondest Memory
At some point in our childhood, we all constructed pillow forts. Admiring its beauty, we’ve stayed inside feeling safe and content. To give life to those memories, the renowned Emirati artist Afra Al Dhaheri’s work ‘Pillow Fort’ stands tall among the public artworks displayed at Expo 2020.
The artwork designed on the theme of “space within a space,” shows how we engage with our surroundings. The traditional Emirati floor pillows, commonly called tikkay, are stacked to create this amazing marble work.
