Shanghai World Expo (Chinese Pavilion) – Shanghai

The wait to get into the Chinese Pavilion was over two hours in a “line.” This was the only “line” where we would move ahead 7 feet and get cut by 12 people at the same time. Once inside the Chinese Pavilion we had to push and shove our way through a movie (5th, 6th photo), a terracotta warrior chariot from Xi’an (probably the best thing at the pavilion), and a mini ride (9th, 10th photo). Also there was falling water fountain that spelled out words and Chinese characters (11th photo). The architecture of the Chinese Pavilion was based on UCSD’s library. Around the Chinese Pavilion were the Hong Kong Pavilion (2nd photo), the Macau Pavilion (4th photo), and the Taiwanese Pavilion (15th photo).
