Expo 2010: Malaysia Pavilion

Theme: One Malaysia, City Harmonious Living

The Malaysia Pavilion is located near subway exit #3, in the center of Zone A, adjacent to the Singapore Pavilion.


The pavilion is shaped in the form of a traditional Malaysian hut and is made from recyclable plastic and palm oil.  The exterior imitates Malaysian textile printing, with colorful flower, birds, butterflies, and geometrical drawings.  After the Expo is finished, the pavilion will be donated to the county of Wuxi in China.

Inside, visitors will be able to enjoy dance performances showcasing the 47 different ethnic groups living in Malaysia.  There is also a miniature putting area for those who enjoy golf, as well as a sightseeing elevator that takes you between the two stories, designed to simulate the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
