Panacea Publishing Asia's art director Loretta Lam was one of over 200,000 visitors, who streamed through the gates of the 2010 World Expo Shanghai on opening day, May 1, 2010. Billed as the largest and most expensive World's Fair, it boasts a cultural smorgasboard of such proportions that Lam, who spent 12 hours in the Park and took the images below, managed to "tour" only mostly Europe and a bit of Asia-Pacific.
This left Lam wanting for more, and she said that she would make another trip in cooler weather. We can bet she isn't the only one planning a repeat visit.
