Some say the pavilions will be shipped back to the respective countries, don't know how this'll happen though.

Picture from SHMetrofans (don't know if it'll be visible):

I remember reading somewhere on this forum that the plan was to remove some while keeping others and using them as art exhibitions and other cultural centers. I can't imagine that they'd take down sun valley or the performance center either.

I heard the Norwegian consul general say that they are looking for a Chinese city as the permanent site for their pavillion after the Expo.

Hi, does anyone know if the pedestrian walk construction on The Bund is finished?

If not, what is the expected completion date? I plan to visit Shanghai in Aug/Sept.
