You can relive your memories of Expo 2020 Dubai once the city looming on the site opens to the world on October 1, 2022.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, announced Expo City Dubai earlier today.

Several site attractions will continue to impress visitors. These are:

1. Al Wasl Square

Known as the beating heart of Expo 2020, the square is home to the magnificent Al Wasl Dome. It is located at the meeting point of Expo’s three themed districts. At night, the dome transforms into a 360-degree projection screen, powered by over 250 state-of-the-art projectors.

2. Garden in the Sky

It is a rotating observation tower that elevates visitors 55 meters above the Expo site for a panoramic view. The Garden in the Sky takes its name from its leafy, tree-lined upper deck.

3. Water feature:

A trip to Expo 2020 Dubai is incomplete without splashing at the waterfall. The walls of the attraction are swept up in gushing water which then appears to flow upwards in a gravity-defying feat.

4. Alif, the Mobility Pavilion:

This is easily one of the most stunning pavilions on the Expo site. It is home to historic nine-meter-tall, larger-than-life mobility giants.

5. Terra, the sustainability pavilion:

The interactive pavilion allows visitors to explore humanity’s relationship with nature and the world’s obsession with excessive consumption. It helps visitors make simple changes to reduce carbon footprint and environmental impact.

6. Opportunity Pavilion:

It will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum – a new addition highlighting the history and impact of World Expos and celebrating the success of the six-month event.

7. Women’s Pavilion

It presents women agents of change around the world,

8. Pavilion of Vision

It honors the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.

9. UAE Pavilion

Designed in the shape of a falcon in flight, the pavilion tells the authentic story of the Emirates.

10. Saudi Arabia Pavilion

Among the most popular attractions, the Expo site’s second largest pavilion offered interactive experiences.
