The adage goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Having been to Expo 2020, I wonder if a gallery of pictures and videos put together can speak enough about it.
Can you imagine, in the last six months over twenty million people have been to the Expo 2020 Dubai? Don't Dubai forget strict travel restrictions and Covid-19 protocols were in place till recently? Not surprisingly, the number will steeply mount in the last one week.
Certainly, it is now or never at the Expo 2020 Dubai. Do visit if you are yet to before it is gone forever. Of course, the good news is that the authorities have planned a smart 15-minute-city – District 2022. It implies, even after curtains come down on the event on 31st March, the Expo 2020 arena will not be deserted.
