Expo City Dubai

Expo City Dubai is gearing up to open on October, but before its full relaunch in October, the legacy site is set to welcome its visitors from September 1, 2022.

Three attractions will reopen this week – Alif and Terra pavilions and the Garden in the Sky.

Designed as a blueprint for sustainable urban planning, Expo City Dubai is a clean, green, technology-enabled, human-centric city of the future, and a central hub for sustainability, innovation, education and entertainment.

Alif, Terra pavilions open from September 1

Ahead of the official opening of the Expo City Dubai site in October, visitors can gain access to two of its most popular pavilions from September 1, with the re-opening of Alif – The Mobility Pavilion and Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion marking the first chapter of Expo City Dubai’s journey.

Alif, the mobility pavilion, transports people through time and across new horizons to discover how mobility has driven human progress throughout history, while Terra encourages visitors to re-evaluate their relationship with the environment through an immersive journey through ocean and forest.
