Expo City Dubai

Expo City Dubai gets ready to welcome visitors

The new Expo City Dubai area, which hosted the World Expo 2020 exhibition last season, will open to receive guests as early as September 1, 2022. This will include the Mobility and Terra pavilions, as well as the opening of the popular Sky Garden attraction.

Tickets for both pavilions, which will be open daily from 10am to 6pm, will cost Dh50 per person and are already available at www.expocitydubai.com. The main relaunch is scheduled for October 1, 2022. Tickets for the attraction will still cost AED 30 each. It will be open from 3pm to 6pm and from September 16 from 10am to 6pm.

Most of Expo City Dubai will be free to visit and walk around. The famous Al Wasl Plaza, Surreal water attraction, Women’s Pavilion and Vision Pavilion, as well as children’s playgrounds and carousels, will open from October 1.

The Opportunity pavilion will also open at a later date – it will house a museum of Expo 2020 and the history of world exhibitions. As previously reported, in the near future the renovated exhibition centre will also reopen for school tours.

Tenants and visitors to the area will be able to get around on golf carts, scooters and bicycles, which will support the emirate’s sustainable development strategy. The township will be eco-friendly, thus Dubai will take another step towards building a green economy.

Expo City Dubai will retain 80% of the buildings left over from Expo 2020. Some of them will be converted into commercial and office buildings. Entrance to the camp will be free of charge, to the pavilions – for a fee.

Much of the infrastructure will be designed to support a healthy lifestyle. The site will feature smart mobility solutions for means of transport, which will enable people to travel safely and conveniently from home to the office and back.

These include a dedicated route for autonomous vehicles, a 10-kilometre cycle path, connected wide walkways and a 5-kilometre jogging track.
