Expo city sets to open its doors on Saturday, 1 October 2022, in Dubai. Visitors can sit under the Al Wasl dome and get their feet wet in the water feature free of charge.
There was a soft opening and inauguration of the Expo city in Dubai for some pavilions.
The Expo city is built free from any car or transportation. Visitors can walk and enjoy the surreal views across the public areas at no charge.
Dubai’s most recent community is planning to attract tourists, residents and office workers as part of its phased opening six months after the Expo ended.
Siemens, DP World and China’s Terminus Technologies are among the industries that took offices in the Dubai South neighbourhood, where start-ups, technology companies, and academic and research facilities have also made their homes.
Terminus said that the significant ambition of Expo City Dubai is to build a global innovation centre.
The technology corporation built Opti, orange talking machines that were a mass favourite rolling across the site.
It performs flash dance routines, distributing directions, advice, and generic information to visitors during the Expo.
The site is free to visit, although there is a charge for some pavilions. Entry to the Al Wasl 360-degree projection dome is free. The Expo’s centre piece will come alive on Saturday evening at sunset.
A display of music and lights will be beamed across the translucent dome at 6.15 pm. Viewings are open to all and will take place in the evening from Wednesday to Sunday.
Entry to the Surreal water feature will also be free. There, sheets of water appear to race upwards, then drop back down and disappear at spectators’ feet.
Children under 12 years of age and people with special needs can visit all attractions at no charge. They must get a complimentary pass at any ticket booth to enter all paid attractions.
