In little over 460 days, Expo 2020 Dubai will open its doors, kickstarting a celebration unlike anything the world has ever witnessed – six months of art, music, food, culture and innovation that will bring together 192 countries and millions of visitors from every corner of the planet.
But before it welcomes the world, Expo 2020 is inviting the UAE public to hop on board ‘The World’s Greatest Show in the Making’ bus tour for a sneak preview of the Expo 2020 site as it nears completion.
Expo 2020’s colourful coaches will collect visitors from pickup points across the UAE, including Dubai Mall, Abu Dhabi Mall and other easily accessible locations in Sharjah and the northern emirates.
Once on board, they will experience an entertaining journey through the history of World Expos as they make their way to the Expo site in Dubai South. Here, they will explore the Expo 2020 Visitor Centre before reboarding the bus for a tour of the site – all accompanied by fun facts and figures on what is fast shaping up to be the world’s greatest show.
Visitors of all ages and nationalities will get an early look at incredible architecture in the making, such as Al Wasl Plaza, the site’s beating heart, the falcon-inspired UAE Pavilion and the Sustainability Pavilion, which pushes the boundaries of eco-conscious design.
The free tours will run every Monday and Wednesday afternoon and all day on Saturdays from 20 July to 31 August 2019.
