Gate 6 to the Expo site is the grandest of all the entries. This cone is a constantly changing aray of color and light. This was the first of six cones with stretched canopy's between them that creates what is known as the EXPO AXIS and leads to the Huangpu River.

This was one of only two pavilions we were able to enter in the whole Expo. It was after 9pm at night, and no line. Strangely enough, one of the displays inside was about Evita Peron and had dolls dressed in some of her fashions along with photographs of her in these dresses...
This pavilion had the record for the longest of all the lines - daily it was a wait up to 9 hours for entry. You can just see in the dark the palm garden on the roof. The India Pavilion is the one to the left with the swirl of lights.
This was my personal favorite for the creative exterior architecture. The UK was stunning but a totally non-functional building, whereas this building was a full scale functioning building with escaltors, etc.
