Over 6.6 million tickets of Shanghai World Expo were sold in May including 1.1 million sold onsite, said Hong Hao, director of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination, on June 1. Currently, 40 million Expo tickets have been sold since tickets first went on sale in March of last year.

Hong said that tourist flow at the Expo was characterized by four features this month. First, the time cycle of the tourist flow was relatively fixed. Second, tourist flow was relatively stable. Third, the tourist flow volume was apparently influenced by factors such as weather conditions. Fourth, the distribution of tourist flow has become gradually balanced.

Hong said the number of visitors to the Expo Park hit a new high of 500,000 tourists on May 29. The total number of tourists in May exceeded 8 million. All operations have run smoothly without any food-safety incidents or incidents caused by serious negligence.
