Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea (2012 여수세계박람회)

21 May

Throughout the years, World Expo has become one of the major international exhibitions. It allows individual countries to present their culture, science and economic development. At the same time, well-organized exhibition raises the prestige of a city undertaking the organization and promotes it as a potential tourist destination. First South Korean city that organized Expo in 1993 was Daejeon. This year’s World Expo is held once again in South Korea – this time in the city located on the southwest coast of the country (South Jeolla Province), Yeosu 여수.

The leading theme of the Expo in Yeosu is “The living ocean and coast”, including following sub-themes: “The protection and sustainable development of ocean and coast”, “New resource technology” and “Creative marine activities”.

The Yeosu Expo officially opened on Saturday, May 12th and will be brimming with exciting shows and performances throughout the entire 93 days, until August 12th.

To some, Yeosu Expo 2012 may be a life changing event. The entire complex looks amazing and futuristic, and all shows and attractions are good for people of all ages. But what’s most important – it’s not only entertainment, it’s an eye-opening experience that outreaches to the world about oceanic issues and has a great impact on education.
