Sheikh Mohammed Urges People to Visit UAE Expo Pavilion at Shanghai or Online

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum extends this invitation on his Facebook Page:

“I am pleased to see the great turnout at the UAE Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010 during its first month. If you are not able to go in person, you can visit it online.”

Information about the Expo
This stylish web site is a mine of information about the UAE Pavilion in Shanghai, the record of the UAE’s involvement at previous Expos and the hopes of the Emirates in participating in the Expo 2010, with an introductory video.

UAE Information
There’s info on the main cities of the UAE with links and maps to all the emirates.

One of the main pages focuses on Emirati culture, heritage and art and there are some superb videos to watch and photos to view.

UAE Expo Theme
One page is devoted to the UAE’s theme, ‘Better Cities Better Life’ which includes discussions on urban planning, sustainable buildings and the task of casting a vision for one’s city.

School Projects
The web site will be useful for school projects about the UAE and if this sounds like too much hard work there is a Kid’s Corner and an Online Quiz which has as the major prize an airline ticket to the UAE.

Visit Virtually or for Real
This virtual visit, as well as the pavilion in Shanghai, will serve an educational purpose as well as fostering tourism and engendering business opportunities.

As of today you have 143 days before Expo 2010 ends.

Check out some of the images used in the UAE Pavilion.
