Judging from the number of daily visitors and factors such as climate after the May Day holiday, it is most ideal to visit the Shanghai World Expo in May out of the six months it is opened, recommended travel experts in Shanghai.

May is more suitable for outdoor activities because in May, the temperature in Shanghai is about 20 degrees Celsius and abnormal weather is less frequent than in other months. Once the rainy season and the "dog days" come, visitors' plans will most likely be disrupted by uncontrollable factors.

So far, the Shanghai World Expo has sold more than 33 million tickets, and together with the free tickets that will be sent to Shanghai residents, the number of the total potential visitors will reach more than 40 million. In addition, after the summer holidays begin, an explosion of visitors is inevitable because of the large number of students on holiday.
