This awe-inspiring event is one of the many spectacular ceremonies that the Emiratis and people from all over the world keep an eye on, with 60 shows every day, 191 nation pavilions, and over 200 restaurants at the location. Having said that, it is believed that people who prepare and organise things ahead of time are wise. So, to make sure you have everything you need here’s a list of basics to remember as you prepare for a smooth and memorable trip to Dubai this year.
You can either download and print your tickets at home or purchase them at one of the doors. The cost of a day ticket is Dh95. The cost of a multi-day pass is Dh195, and it is valid for 30 days from the first day of use. The season pass costs Dh495 and is valid for the entire six months. Many people, especially those under the age of 18, are admitted for free. Also, anyone over the age of 60, those with impairments, students with a valid ID card, nannies, and drivers are eligible.
2. Water Bottle
Given the vast distances to cross, you are considerably more likely to become dehydrated than you are to satisfy your appetite. If you have filled water bottles on hand, you won’t have to rush to find them and can continue to enjoy your time as planned.
3. Sun Protection
Even in the winter, temperatures can range from 23 to 29 degrees. With so much to see and do, it’s always a good idea to use sunscreen or at least some type of sun protection to avoid skin burns, tans, and other skin issues.
4. Medical Basics
Expo 2020 is both fascinating and exhausting. Isn’t it true that with an unfathomable square foot area, you wouldn’t want to get boils and blisters while getting the ultimate feel? So, among other things, remember to include band-aids, crepe bandages, and ointments.
5. Power Bank/ Portable Charger
Who wants to miss even an ounce of a chance to catch it on their phones and cameras? Yes, you must remember that you may not be able to function without a power bank or a portable charger. Technology enters the scene in a time where seeing with your eyes isn’t enough. While taking numerous photographs, your respective devices will undoubtedly require charging.
6. Mini Travel Fan
The lack of a completely centralised airconditioning system is noticeable during this event. A travel-sized handheld fan would be a must-pack item in that situation. Having an accessible portable fan will be a lifesaver, as previously highlighted in Dubai’s weather forecast. Keep cool while walking in the blazing desert sun or walking for miles without air conditioning.
7. Deodorant Wipes/Dry Towel
After a full day of travelling and exploring, you’ll probably want to take a short shower. These deodorant wipes are small enough to stow in your handbag or daypack for quick access. The dry towel is lightweight and can be tossed into your handbag or daypack when you’re on the road. It’s useful in a variety of situations.
Now that we’ve covered everything, get ready for the most exciting event of the year.
