Shanghai Expo 2010, it's hot, it's crowded and there's a world of amazing things to see. The Peru Pavilion has great food, the French Pavilion has perfumed gardens, the Chile Pavilion has inexpensive fine wines, the State Grid Pavilion has an incredible 720-degree full-immersion video experience and the Saudi Pavilion... well, it's the most expensive pavilion ever built.
We haven't had the stamina to endure the seven-hour queues to enter the Saudi Pavilion, you might find anything from Ali Baba's cave to a VIP swimming pool filled with Saudi's prime export—light sweet crude—but you'll have to go there to find out. Or you can read about how to avoid Expo queues altogether.
The point is, the Expo Park is far too large to "do" in just a day, so to make the most of your visit it's best to plan ahead. One way you can do that is to check the official Expo 2010 Guide to learn about Expo tickets, Expo transportation, pavilions and more. Ctrip also offers a host of expedited Expo 2010 tours including hotel transfers and priority admission to top pavilions.
