Some 60-million tourists have visited the Shanghai World Expo since its opening in May.

The world's largest fair is attracting visitors with its myriad of ideas for low-carbon urban living, mind-blowing architecture, and the promise of a convenient and thoroughly enjoyable trip.

Zhang Nini finds out just how much visitors have enjoyed the expo and its facilities.

Every morning, the expo park freshens up for a new batch of tourists. They have arrived in the millions, making Shanghai this year's hottest destination. As an exposition of innovative ideas in urban development, the expo’s pavilions are its main attraction where these ideas are often embodied.

The host country has initiated a series of measures to accommodate the daily crowds. These include erecting shelters at every popular pavilion for the long queues and providing free drinking water at 100 spots.

Whether it be in transportation, catering, volunteering or information services, the expo staff are doing everything to ensure visitors have an experience to remember. They hope this will be a life-enhancing journey, and not just as an eye-opener, but also as a chance to feel taken care of

For many of the expo visitors, this is their first time to such a world fair. And it's the collective wish of the staff members here that their first experience will be remembered for a lifetime.
