The first Expo tour map out of the print

World Expo organizers yesterday afternoon started printing 80 million free Expo tour maps which will be offered to visitors of the event.

At the front side, the Expo tour map will include routes to leave the Expo site, Expo pavilions and events. On the back page, it has a full Expo site scene as well as index of all Expo pavilions. The full map adopts a hand-drawing style.

The maps will be offered to Expo visitors from the trial operation from April 20 to 25 and the Expo period from May 1 to October 31. Expo site workers will offer these maps at inner squares of eight entrances of Expo sites as well as 56 visitor service stations in Expo site. Apart from the Chinese version, other version of the map includes English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Arabian.

It marks toilets, drinking water taps, public transport inside the Expo site, rooms for mothers milking newborns as well as “lost and founds.” The map also includes locations of reserve machines that help visitors to reserve entries into certain pavilions.

The Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination had sought opinions and advice on this tour map and other two traffic guide maps online for one week.
