Excited about Dubai Expo 2020? We all are!
The world’s biggest event will welcome visitors across the world starting October 1. More than 180 countries will be participating in the mega event which is slated for 182 days. It aims to host an expo that inspires people by showcasing the best examples of collaboration, innovation, and cooperation from around the world.
Its name means coral reef in old Tagalog, one of the more than 170 languages spoken in the Philippines.
The Philippine Pavilion, located in the Sustainability District of the Expo, poetically emphasizes cultural sustainability through at least a millennia. In a plot size of 3,163.25 square metre, the pavilion presents a symphony of architecture, art, and design that links the deep past with the future of connectivity for the Filipinos.
If you’re planning to go the site by Metro, bus, taxi, or car, below are the steps:
Getting there by metro:
The fastest and most sustainable way to get here. The Dubai Metro Red Line takes you from the city of Dubai to the entrance of Expo 2020. First arrivals to the Expo Station are at 06:15 Saturday to Thursday and 09:15 on Friday. Last departures from the Expo Station are at 00:00 Saturday to Wednesday and 01:00 Thursday to Friday.
Plan your trip by metro by downloading RTA’s S’hail app.
Getting there by Rider and RTA buses:
Get to and from the Expo 2020 site via a dedicated public bus service: Expo Rider. It’s free of charge for Expo 2020 visitors and you can catch it from different locations in Dubai and other Emirates. Just remember where it drops you off as you’ll have to take the return trip from the same gate!
You can also pay to hop on any of RTA’s standard buses.

There will be a starting flat fee of AED 20 for rides originating from the Expo site.
