China Travel Pacckage With Free Ticket To The Shanghai World Expo 2010

The 2010 Shanghai World Expo is located at the waterfront of the Huangpu River between Nanpu Bridge and Lupu Bridge in downtown Shanghai and it will be held from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2010.

The Shanghai World Expo will be the biggest event in its history, with 192 countries and 50 International organizations having confirmed participation. 70 million visitors are expected from both domestic and abroad to attend this world event. More than 20,000 cultural shows will be held during the Expo.

Themed "Better City, Better Life", the 2010 World Expo Shanghai conveys a common wish of mankind for a better future and better city life. In 1800, only 2 percent of the global population lived in cities,howeverby 1950, the figure had risen to 29 percent, and by 2000, almost half the world population had moved into cities. The United Nations estimates the urban population will account for 55 percent of the total human population by 2010. Despite all its glories, there is no denying that the city today, because of high-density living patterns, faces a series of challenges, such as spatial conflicts, cultural collisions, resource shortages and environment degeneration. Without effective controls, the unchecked expansion of cities will aggravate these problems and consequently erode the quality of urban life. As the Istanbul Declaration on Human Settlements, issued at the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) reaffirms "Our cities must be places where human beings lead fulfilling lives in dignity, good health, safety, happiness and hope." All the problems facing the city, including congestion, pollution, crime and conflict, are believed to have originated from the discords between man and nature, between man and man, and between spiritual and material aspects of life. It is also maintained that such discord, if left unattended, will inevitably lead to the decline of the quality of life in cities and even the degeneration of human civilization. It is in the face of such discord that Expo 2010 Shanghai China proposes the concept of a "City of Harmony" responding to the appeal for "Better City, Better Life." The "City of Harmony" features harmonious co-existence of diverse cultures, harmonious economic development, harmonious living in the age of science and technology, harmonious functioning of communities, the cells of the city, and harmonious interactions between urban and rural areas.

This expo will be the first registered World Exposition in a developing country, which speaks volumes about the expectations the world places on China’s future development… especially after the successful 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. Now, more than ever, is the time to discover China!

Although you might be more familiar with the term "World’s Fair," world expos continue to capture our collective imaginations with galleries of human inspirations and thoughts. Since 1851 when the "Great Exhibition of Industries of All Nations" was held in London, world expositions have attained increasing prominence as grand events for economic, scientific, technological and cultural exchanges, serving as an important platform for displaying historical experience, exchanging innovative ideas, demonstrating "esprit de corps" and articulating visions of what the future will hold.
