Oman Pavilion received its millionth visitor at 5pm yesterday and the lucky visitor was given a wooden model of traditional Omani sailing ship as a souvenir.
Chang Dewei, a Xuzhou native from Shanghai’s neighboring Jiangsu Province, was on his first visit to the Expo. He said that he felt excited and honored as well as surprised being the millionth visitor to Oman Pavilion.
The Oman Pavilion offered VIP reception to Chang and his companion while the pavilion director’s assistant accompanied them touring the pavilion exhibits such as the country’s environment, culture heritage as well as its sustainable economic development.
Located at Zone A, the pavilion integrates Arabic feature and modern style. The exhibits inside feature a ancient city, a city inside deserts, a city in the mountain area, a port city, as well as its capital Muscat and the Blue City which will be completed by 2020. They are designed to help interpret Omani people’s unique concept of sustainable urban development.
