Those who want to avoid big crowds and queues of two to three hours to enter a single pavilion can visit the Puxi section of the Shanghai World Expo site.

Visit the Puxi section and avoid long queues

Once again yesterday, most people flocked to the Pudong section to see the China Pavilion and other national pavilions.

In contrast to the long, snaking queues in front of most European pavilions, visitors usually do not need to wait to enter corporate pavilions or the Urban Best Practices Area in the Puxi section.

At the Oil Pavilion, visitors can see, smell and touch a 4D movie. And people will likely be amazed when entering China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation Pavilion as they pass through a "water gate." Don't worry, you won't get wet as the "water" is simply high-tech lighting that people need to pass through to enter the building.

Each corporate pavilion includes cutting-edge technology.

Visitors will be able to get some ideas of what the future holds when touring the Pavilion of Future, a building renovated from the Nanshi Power Factory. The factory's landmark chimney has been converted into a massive thermometer.

Ding Huili, 23, a bank employee, said the Space Pavilion "was fantastic." The pavilion provides an exhibit on the evolution of China's aerospace industry.

Ding said the pavilions in Puxi are as beautiful as those in Pudong and recommended others visit the area.

The UBPA section gives visitors a chance to experience an eco-friendly lifestyle.
