After the rush crowds of opening day and the 35,000 people who lined up to visit it this weekend, the China Pavilion is rethinking its ticket policy. Now, instead of having people line up willy nilly to get in whenever the line lets them, tickets to the pavilion will have specific dates and times on them.
Says Shanghai Daily:
The World Expo organizer yesterday changed ticket policy in response to overcrowding and long queues to enter the pavilion.
People can buy tickets from 1pm to 4pm a day in advance of attending or from 8am to 1pm on the day.
Each person is limited to a maximum of five tickets.
Any tickets already sold before the new ticket system can still be used on any day from now until the end of May.
So if you were one of the people who waited until the end of Expo to visit the China Pavilion, only to be turned off by earlier reports of the insane lines that inaugurated its reopening – well, I guess it’s worth another try now?
