On the final day of the world’s fair, Expo 2020 Dubai appears set to coast past an impressive 23 million visits.
Crowds have soaked up the cultures, traditions and dreams for the future of countries great and small throughout the six-month-long mega event.
With 192 country pavilions on show, visitors have been spoilt for choice. But some nations have managed to stand out.
The National checked in with pavilion organisers to find out how many people they have welcomed since Expo opened in October last year, with the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”.
A quick update on the numbers as the Expo draws to a close – the Saudi Arabia pavilion is reaching the 5 million visit mark and the Kuwait pavilion has crossed 3 million visits.
Germany, Brazil and Russia are among those that have shot past two million, with a busy final day ahead.
Other much-loved pavilions such as those of Japan and Singapore will share their numbers at the end of the world’s fair.
