It's early days yet, but already the arguments over which is the most impressive pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo have begun.
On a lengthy site visit during the ongoing soft opening yesterday, the queues were longest at the Japanese Pavilion (where UK Pavilion (for pictures of just how long the lines were there, see Chinese Pavilion is obviously hard to ignore. But it was the South Korean Pavilion that attracted the biggest crowd of amateur photographers. (The UK Pavilion is certainly cool, but it's mostly hidden behind a wall. And while the interior of the Japanese pavilion might be worth the wait, architecturally it looks like a squat purple frog.)

Not to be confused with the ROK Joint-Corporate Pavilion (on the Puxi side of the river), and certainly not with the North Korean Pavilion (itself worth a visit for its sheer surreality), the South Korean Pavilion is a marvel of design, combining Hangul lettering with a rainbow of hand-painted tiles to quite beautiful effect.

It's located in Zone A, toward the eastern end of the Pudong side of the Expo Park, not far from the Chinese Pavilion. Read more about the ideas behind it here.
