As everyone probably knows, the Yeosu 2012 Expo finished on August 12th. It was a wonderful 3-month run for this “magic” event set down in the middle of quiet, little Yeosu. I’ve been a bit depressed that the fun has ended, so I’ll have to figure out a way to make my own “magic” for the rest of the summer. Organizers reached their goal of 8 million visitors over the 3 months, but they had to resort to lowering the fees substantially during certain times of the day to entice people to visit. So, they got their 8 million, but what the profit or loss was has yet to be determined.
I’ll keep putting up photos of the Expo over the course of the rest of the summer (and maybe the winter!), so here are some more night shots of the event. As always, click on the thumbnails to get larger views.
Here are a few shots of the exterior of some of the pavilions.
The “guardian” outside the Thailand Pavilion.
Here’s a shot of some of the interior infrastructure of the International Pavilion from near the Angola Pavilion.
And just around the corner is the Expo Digital Gallery.
Up on the third floor, you could look out onto the roof of one of the International Pavilion blocks.
And, here’s another view of the International Pavilion roof and infrastructure.
Also from the third floor is this view of Gate 4, the Expo Town Gate.
Here’s an early-evening view looking back toward the Expo apartments, “Expo Town”.
Finally, a couple of shots of the “sail” structures that were ubiquitous throughout the grounds.
