With just over 10 weeks to go before the greatest show on earth comes to a close, here are my Top Tips for visitors heading to Expo 2020 Dubai
🚇 There’s a direct metro connection to Expo, with Expo 2020 Dubai having its own metro station. It’s the fastest and easiest entry point, IMHO.
💉 Vaccination and tickets are checked at entrance. Both print / digital copies work, so keep these handy.
📜 On-site RT-PCR available for AED 100, results in 10-12 hours. It is also one of the most reasonably priced tests, and you won’t waste extra time scampering for labs.
☕ Hang at District 2020 (the future of Expo, and part of Rove hotel) near the Metro entrance – the only coworking space on-site with a cafe, resto, bar and a fab vibe.
📱 Apps you’ll need:
1. Expo 2020 Dubai (navigation + info) 2. Expo 2020 Business App (networking, one-time $3 fee) 3. Glofox (to book free fitness and gym activities on-site. I used it on Day 1 for a free guided bicycle tour of Expo) 4. Careem – besides biking city transport, can also be used to rent cycles on-site Expo. 5. Virtual Expo 2020 Dubai – missing the event in person? Check out the mesmerizing virtual experience with live feeds!
Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
