hkskyline's 2010 SHANGHAI EXPO Photos #4

175. While the Turkey pavilion's line was quite long, it moved rather quickly, so was worth a try. The exterior looked like the Water Cube though.



176. Inside, explore the country's rich history and heritage.









180. Slovenia's pavilion made good use of colours, centered around a local literary work.





182. The Czech Republic's pavilion was a science museum in disguise!





184. Belarus





186. The Italian pavilion was a huge facility showcasing plenty of wares. Luckily, I was able to get in within 20 minutes after dinner, when the crowds thinned out significantly.



187. Having been to Italy just a few months before my Expo visit, this arch entrance wasn't so impressive.



188. What drew my attention was the abundance of modern design exhibits throughout the pavilion.



189. Can't forget they make fast cars as well!









193. Morocco was one of my favourites, with a great portrayal of traditional culture without the neon and dazzle to distract. The interior courtyard looked very real, down to the trees. The pavilion stretched a few stories up, so this big open space was quite dramatic.





















203. Upstairs, they re-created a bazaar, with each room featuring a different type of local specialty from tiles to food. It was very interesting to explore their attention to details.

















211. Additions to your spice rack?







214. Angola
