You can relive your Expo 2020 Dubai memories once the city that is shaping up at 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 UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced the Expo City Dubai earlier today.
Several attractions at the site will continue to wow visitors. These are:
1. Al Wasl Plaza
Known as the beating heart of Expo 2020, the plaza is home to the stunning Al Wasl Dome. It is located at the meeting point of Expo’s three thematic districts. By night, the dome transforms into a 360-degree projection screen, powered by more than 250 state-of-the-art projectors.
2. Garden in the Sky
It is a rotating observation tower that lifts visitors 55 metres above the Expo site for a panoramic view. The Garden in the Sky earns its name with its luscious green, tree-lined upper deck.
3. Water Feature:
A trip to the Expo 2020 Dubai is incomplete without splashing around at the waterfall. The attraction’s walls are swept over by gushing water which then appears to flow upwards in a gravity-defying feat.

It’s easily among the most stunning pavilions at the Expo site. It is home to larger-than-life, nine-metre-tall historical giants of mobility.
