Day One

Start your trip at the entrance on Yaohua Road at 8:30 am. Make a reservation at the China pavilion, then take a stroll down to Celebration Square along Expo Boulevard to watch the daily opening ceremony of the Expo site. Afterwards move on to the Culture Center for the opening ceremony of the pavilion of the day. When you've finished visiting the nearby Theme Pavilions, it will probably be time for lunch.

After you've eaten, head over to catch some of the performances at the Culture Center, then proceed to the China pavilion.

Next, spare some time to wander around the regional pavilions and those of Hong Kong and Macao.

End the day with quick tours of the pavilions of Kazakhstan, Japan and South Korea.

Day Two

Begin your journey at 8:30 am from the entrance on Changqing Road. Be sure to make an early reservation to visit the pavilions of the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland. Move on to the pavilions that are situated in Zone B, such as the Thailand and Australia pavilions.

After this, walk towards the Huangpu River along the elevated sidewalk. At the end of this you will find yourself surrounded by a number of pavilions of international organizations. You may also catch some performances at Theme Square before you rest for dinner.

In the afternoon, cross Changqing Road to take a look at the pavilions of Spain, Belgium-EU, Switzerland, France and Germany. The elevated sidewalk will take you as far as the Denmark and Sweden pavilions. You can also check out the national structures of Chile, Peru and Brazil after crossing Xiying Road.

The Central and South America joint pavilion will lead you straight to the USA pavilion. Keep moving to scope out the series of rented pavilions in that area, as well as the Russia and UK pavilions. Bring the day to a close by stopping by the Africa joint pavilion.

Access the Expo site from the entrance on Xizang Road South and start the day off at the corporate pavilions.

Continue on after lunch to look at the Urban Future pavilion, then return to the corporate area to take a look at the China Aviation pavilion, the Information and Communication pavilion, and the SAIC-GM pavilion.

Dine at Jiangnan park then get ready for another dose of corporate exhibitionism by venturing inside the Coca-Cola pavilion, the Space Homeland pavilion and the State Grid pavilion. Follow this up with peaks inside the Petroleum pavilion and the Korea Corporate joint pavilion. Your last stops of the day will be Expo Museum, the Civilization pavilion and the Japan Industry joint pavilion.
