Here are the top must-do, must-see things and activities at Dubai Expo 2020

1. Book a room at Rove Expo 2020 Hotel
Rove is the only hotel inside Dubai Expo 2020 site with open-plan dining, modern co-working spaces and soundproof phone booths. Within touching distance of Al Wasl Plaza, guests checking in also get complimentary access to the attraction. But remember, staying at this hotel doesn’t come cheap (Approximately Dh842 or USD 231 per night for the smallest Cozy Rover Rooms) and getting a room is even tougher as most of the hotel rooms are completely booked till March 31, 2022.

2. Check out the ‘Colours of the World Parade’
No worries if your clients can’t visit all the 192 country pavilions in two or three days! Ask them to head straight to Ghaf Avenue at 12:45 pm each day to catch ‘The Colours of the World Parade’ – a colourful and vibrant moving celebration featuring musicians and performers from across the globe. This unique cultural fusion experience is a treat to the eyes and mind.

3. Yoga at the Instagram-famous water fountain of Expo 2020
Every Monday, women (with valid Expo 2020 ticket) can participate in a complimentary yoga class from 9:30 am to 10:30 am at the water fountain between Al Wasi Plaza and Jubilee Park. Simply reserve your spot via the Glofox app and tell your clients to carry their mats and towels.

4. Best of local and global cuisine
From the best homegrown burger brand (High Joint) to the local hybrid cafe (Canvas by Coffee Culture) to luxe dining spaces like Fish, Scarpetta, Epochal Banquet, Jubilee Gastronomy Restaurant and many more; your clients won’t ask for more when it comes to food and dining places at Expo 2020. Our hot favourite is Scarpetta as it brings its first-ever burrata bar to the UAE along with its signature Tomato & Basil Spaghetti.

5. Best view of Expo 2020
Do plan a small breather for your client during their visit to Dubai Expo 2020 by booking them at Garden in the Sky. It’s a 55-meter high platform that promises a great panoramic view of 1080 acres of the Expo Site and is also a great way to relax and have some fresh air.

6. Hitch an electric bicycle to explore Dubai Expo 2020
If your client is not excited to navigate 1080 acres on foot, tell them to hitch an electric bike. Your clients can find these yellow electric bikes parked all around the Expo site and can book through the Careem Bike mobile app. The e-bikes are capped at 45 minutes; so they can ride around the site for however long only if each trip does not exceed that duration. To ride it for longer, they have to re-dock the bike at the closest station before time. Then, scan the QR code again to unlock the same bike. So, for a day the rental fee will be fixed at Dh20 for as many trips as they like.

7. Visit the Emirates Pavillion
What’s going on here? Nothing much, just the ‘Future Of Aviation’ as Emirates likes to call it. This three-story pavilion is an absolute Disneyland for geeks. You can even cop some aviation merch and design your very own aircraft there. Do check it out, not giving out any spoilers!

8. There’s a SpaceX rocket at the Expo
Inside the USA pavilion, you’ll find a real-life SpaceX Falcon rocket. Yes, the real deal. It’s almost like a space lab where you can also find authentic moon rocks and the US Mars Rover.
