It is now or never, before it is gone forever. You have only two more weeks left to see the world in one place, at Expo 2020 Dubai, which concludes on March 31.
As the “World’s Greatest Show” enters its last fortnight, visitors, especially those who have not been able to make it to the Expo yet, are urged to make the most of it. From unleashing the inner child in you at the giant slide in Luxembourg Pavilion to walking through a sea of fog in the Switzerland Pavilion, several rare experiences await the visitors at most of the pavilions and the technological marvel Al Wasl Plaza, the world’s biggest 360-degree projection dome.
While each of the 192 country pavilions offers unique experiences related to the country, there are plenty of other activities awaiting visitors, from dipping your toes in the iconic and mesmerizing waterfall and getting an aerial view of the entire Expo site from the Garden in the Sky, to engaging in sports and games at the Sports Arena and having some fun time at the Festival Garden.
While meeting the robots across the Expo site and learning to fly at the Emirates Pavilion would offer high-tech experiences, pavilions of countries like Singapore and Malaysian take people closer to nature with net-zero energy concept. It is also the last chance to shop mascots, games, homeware, apparel, accessories and more at Expo’s Official Stores across the Expo site that are open only until March 31; to give you a chance to ‘own a little piece of Expo’. For the loyal visitors, who have received stamps from over a 100 pavilion in their yellow passports, it is a chance to get a limited-edition white passport at any visitor centre.
The Oman pavilion takes visitors on a journey ‘connecting people and minds’ across time and place, in a modern telling of the story of Oman, rooted in a respect for the richness of the past, inspired by the innovation of the present and confident in the future. By showcasing the real opportunity in Oman: The People.
The Pavilion design is an abstracted representation of the Frankincense Tree and for the first time, the Conceptual design was developed by two young Omani architects: Alya Al Battashi & Rihab Al Zakwani. If you haven’t headed to Expo yet, now’s the chance! Show your love for Oman, discover the scents, sounds, and scope for Oman’s vibrant future at Expo 2020 Dubai.
