Shanghai’s experiencing flashbacks worse than the last time you toured with Phish. Over the weekend, the China Pavilion saw numbers and lines reminiscent of last year’s peak Expo days, with queuing times of up to four hours! 60,000 people visited the pavilion on Saturday and Sunday each, immediately forming lines stretching hundreds of meters.
Only a few hours after opening, the pavilion put up a notice asking visitors to consider coming back on a different day, and suggested 3pm or later to avoid the lines.
The pavilion closes its doors for good on October 9, hence the mad scramble to attend. If you count yourself among those insane enough to attempt it, consider calling the pavilion hotline for a status update: 021-20202010.
