Expo 2020: My Experience ( Part Two )



Expo 2020 has been the talk of the town for a long time, and I've wanted to visit since it started in October, at last wish came true! The expo site is 1083 acres in size, and visiting all 200 pavilions might take weeks.I visited about 45 pavilions in two days and walked for roughly 30 kilometres, so my advice would be to wear your most comfortable shoes and an outfit that is light weighted and easy to move around In. Heres a look Into my Expo Visit!



Pavilions 🏢


Austria 🇦🇹 - The Austria Pavilion is located in the Opportunity District and takes visitors on a sensory journey. The Pavilions' design is based on a model of wind towers from nearby buildings. Cones of varying heights in the UAE cause air to constantly move, thereby maintaining temperature balance. The sensory organs of sight, smell, touch, and taste will play a role in your journey through the pavilion.
