Crowds set new record

MORE than 500,000 people visited the Expo yesterday, breaking Friday's record of 382,100.

There were long queues at entrances as well as almost all the pavilions, restaurants, toilets and snack stalls.

The number of group visitors reached 180,000 and there were still long queues at the Houtan Entrance in Pudong by 10:30am, the main entrance for groups.

Long queues formed at Urban Best Practices Area pavilions throughout the morning. In Pudong, visitors had to wait for up to eight hours to enter the Saudi Arabia Pavilion. The German and Swiss pavilions had to close green channels for safety reasons because of the crowds.
