The Seychelles celebrates its national pavilion day Friday at the Shanghai World Expo as part of the Africa Joint Pavilion, in Zone C of the Expo Site.

The showcase is divided into three areas, Spirit of Nature, Land of Dreams and Balanced City. It features a vast "Coco de Mer" forest, a precious palm tree unique to the Seychelles.

Two giant tortoises presented to China as gifts are also on show, plus many model ships, a tradition the Seychelles is well known for.

Inspired by the country's natural resources and cultural features, the pavilion focuses on the country's achievements in striking a harmonic balance between nature and cities.
