Top 5 things to do on your visit to Dubai Expo 2020

Even though the pandemic has spoiled the travel plans of many, Expo 2020 Dubai has not failed the hopes of travel enthusiasts by allowing them to travel around the world without any hindrance. Are you already wondering ‘how’?

Expo 2020 Dubai is an event where 192 countries from across the world are participating to share their innovative ideas for a better world through sustainability, mobility and opportunity, which are the themes of this mega-event. This expo is aimed at inspiring and triggering curiosities and ideas for the upcoming generations. After a long wait, the ban on international travel was lifted by UAE, which led to the sudden increase in applications for Dubai visa as travellers were waiting to visit the city of gold.

Top things to do at Dubai Expo 2020

Here are the top five things to do on your visit to Expo 2020 Dubai

·    Experience future of food at the Epochal Banquet

Although you will be able to enjoy a wide range of tastes at Expo 2020's food court, why not experience the future of dining through Bompas & Parr's immersive multi-sensory studio, at the Epochal Banquet. It's a two-hour long culinary experience that arouses your senses with AI feats from the future. It is also influenced by microbiology, space, artificial intelligence and hyper-intelligence.

·    Visit the SpaceX rocket at the Expo

Do you really think you can navigate all of the 1080 acres on foot? Hitch an electric bicycle that will help you explore a lot more than what you can on foot. In the USA pavilion, you will be able to see a real Space-X Falcon rocket, and the atmosphere doesn't feel anything less than a space lab in the expo. Also, you can spot genuine Moon rocks and the US Mars Rover at the space lab.

·    The future of service stations inspired by UAE’s national tree

The national tree of UAE is Ghaf, which is also symbolised as an epitome of resilience because of the region’s harsh climatic conditions. This futuristic service station has been designed on the exoskeleton of the body of the Ghaf tree. Moreover, it’s entirely solar-powered plus its canopy is made of carbon fibre too.

·    The glorious Al-Wasl Plaza

The first thing that will catch your attention once you enter the expo is the glorious Al-Wasl Plaza. It's a majestic cathedral of projection lights, 3D sounds, and other attractions to offer you a mind-blowing experience. If you feel like taking a break, just have a seat there and experience the grand theatre of light work that you will remember forever.

·    Interact with the on-ground robot-pals

Another exciting activity that one can indulge in is interacting with on-ground robots that can be seen walking around the place who can talk and respond to you. It is certainly exciting for the kids, and you can take photos with them easily.

In addition to these activities, there are many more things to do at this Expo 2020 Dubai. Make sure to choose the best Dubai packages while making your holiday plans because you wouldn’t want to miss a single thing when it comes to travelling in the city of gold.

Rural Frames from T.G.Halli Reservoir

At a time when we are slowly going back to travelling our backyards, my visit to Thippagondanahalli Reservoir threw up a surprise. The gates were closed and access to the dam was denied, but further search on the maps led me to a different route through a village to the reservoir. It proved once again that maps aren't totally trustworthy, as the road turned into a mud trail and came to an abrupt end without a cue. However, it was serendipity, as the trail led to lush green pastures and sprawling farmlands where farmers and bullocks toiled away. Beyond the farmlands I could see glimpses of the blue waters of the reservoir with the intimidating Savanadurga Hill in the backdrop. Absolutely picturesque frames on offer!  

Sometimes a wrong route takes you to the right destination!

Travel Information:

Thippagondanahalli Reservoir is 46 km away from Bangalore.

Built over River Arkavathi, this is one of the largest reservoirs near Bangalore.
