There are 192 Pavilions at the Expo 2020. Even if you plan a day per pavilion, you’d be 10 days short to cover everything. What to do? Don’t panic. We’ve got your FOMO covered. In this article, we’ve listed the coolest spots at Expo 2020 you should definitely check out.
Coolest Spots at Expo 2020
The Water Feature
Dubai isn’t new to water attractions. Be it ridiculously magnificent fountains or great amusement water parks, they are aplenty. Even if you go in with the attitude of ‘It can’t impress me,’ you’re in for a treat.
Situated between the heart of the Expo 2020, Al Wasl Plaza, and Jubilee Park, The Water Feature mesmerizes the visitors. Water falling from 13 metre high vertical walls magically disappears before it touches the ground. At night, the water feature says good-bye to gravity, changes its direction, and moves from bottom to top of the wall.
Before you think, let us answer it. No, it is not computer graphics. The water is real.
Enjoy the Brazil Pavilion, the Brazilian Style
Brazil is a water-rich nation. A little over 12% of the world’s surface water resources including The Amazon flows through the South American nation. To celebrate the natural resource, the Brazil pavilion at the Expo 2020 offers an aquatic-based experience for visitors.
Screens on all the sides showing the underwater clips, there is a shallow water tank in the center. Take off your shoes and walk right in. Let your toes sink, and let the pavilion’s atmosphere sink in your soul. Enjoy the nature of Brazil at the pavilion, the Brazilian way.
Climb the Alps
Famous for its luxury watches and delicious chocolates, Switzerland is famous for its breathtaking alpine sceneries. To bring that experience to the visitors, when you enter the Swiss pavilion, a sea of fog welcomes you to the mesmerizing view of the alps.
You can walk through the fog and trek in the alps, and enjoy the natural beauty of the neutral nation.
Flap your Wings at the Poland Pavilion
In search of warmer temperatures, thousands of birds from Poland migrate to the UAE. The Polish pavilion is decorated by white metal stylised birds flapping their wings on a wood-covered structure that resembles a tree to honor this connection between the two nations.
Poland, considered the birdwatcher’s paradise, has brought the ‘A’ game by constructing this two-floor high majestic structure. Even if there is a very light wind, the birds sway with the movement, and it is an incredible sight to watch.
Commemorating the Hard Work
Expo 2020 is a culmination of 8 years of hard work by over 200,000 workers. The world’s greatest show wouldn’t be possible without those involved in the project infusing life to it. To honor all those, a Worker’s Monument has been installed at the site. The names of the more than 200,000 workers are etched on the 30 monolithic stone columns commemorating their hard work.
The monument honoring the workers is not in a corner on the Expo site. It is located at Jubilee Park which is directly opposite the heart of the Expo 2020, Al Wasl Plaza.
