Fans of Expo 2020 Dubai will be able to visit some of the event’s key features and pavilions from September 1, a month ahead of the official reopening of the site as a business and entertainment hub.

The Government of Dubai Media Office announced on Monday that two of the site’s most popular pavilions, Alif – The Mobility Pavilion and Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, will reopen to the public from September 1, with entry costing AED 50 ($13.61) per visitor, per pavilion.

Tickets can be bought at kiosks onsite and visitors can also get an aerial view of the city as Garden in the Sky will also reopen, with tickets priced at AED 30 each.

In June it was announced that the Expo 2020 Dubai site is to be transformed into the emirate’s newest business free zone – and is being lined up as a possible venue for more of the world’s biggest events.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice president and prime minister of the UAE and the ruler of Dubai, unveiled the plan for Expo City Dubai, part of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, on Monday.

Set to open fully on October 1 this year, the city will include offices, leisure facilities, food and entertainment venues, sports facilities and a mall.

The Dubai Exhibition Centre, which hosted global summits, conferences and concerts during the six months of the expo, will continue to host a range of business and entertainment events.

The city will be accessible only by pedestrians, with no cars or heavy vehicles, and free of single-use plastic, carrying forward the sustainability legacy of Expo 2020.
