Since Shanghai World Expo is going to drop its curtain on Oct. 31, the whole Beijing Pavilion is about to come back home to be shown in the capital. By that time, local residents of Beijing can enjoy the charm of the World Expo in their home city. Beijing Morning Post reported

From today, Shanghai World Expo enters its 10-day countdown to the closing ceremonies, but Xu Yuwei, the vice director of Beijing Pavilion, and other teams from Beijing that participated in the World Expo, are getting busier than ever. They are busy making plans for the pavilion closing ceremony and how to take good advantage of the Pavilion after Expo.

Beijing Pavilion, which is also nicknamed "Transformer," is the only Pavilion can shift shapes at Shanghai World Expo, and it was formed by 160 mechanical arms and 80 LED screens. Since the Beijing Pavilion's first appearance, there have been some doubtful voices about its sustainable utilization.

Now, the answer is sure and positive.

Given the theme of "Green Beijing," Beijing Pavilion is carrying the idea of sustainable utilization since it was designed and built. It adopted an unconventional welding method for easy loading and unloading of its section.

Xu assured reporters that the Beijing Pavilion was about to be transported back to Beijing after Shanghai World Expo, and it was promising that Beijing residents could visit the whole of it in their home city.

Large numbers of visitors try to catch the "last bus" of World Expo

According to major national travel agencies, the number of Beijingers visiting Shanghai World Expo is increasing sharply recently, and most people want to catch the "last bus" of the World Expo in its final days. Regarding this, the organizers of the Shanghai World Expo informed visitors that a large flow of visitors might flood into the Expo Site this weekend, and visitors should better arrange their visiting time more rationally to avoid peaks.

The number of visitors who entered Expo Site on Oct. 16 was as more as 1.03 million people, which set a record in Expo history. Since many domestic visitors want to catch the "last bus" and more people from overseas are coming to visit Shanghai World Expo, it is predicted that another extreme peak of visitors will be appear this weekend.
