Your guide to the best things to do at Expo 2020 before it ends this March 31.

On top of daily parades and performances, there are 200 pavilions in Expo 2020 Dubai, out of which 191 are representative of participating countries.

The event will officially end on Thursday, March 31, 2022, and there's still so much left to see and try in less than a month's time.

While all pavilions have their own unique features and activities, here are 10 things you must see or do before Expo 2020 ends - in no particular order.

1. Catch a live show at Expo

Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, Stray Kids, Anirudh Ravichander and so many other local and global acts have performed on Expo 2020's stages.

There's still an impressive line-up of singers, dancers, theatre groups, and performers in store, so be sure to keep an eye on Expo 2020's schedule!

Notable shows for March include Indian performer Adnan Sami, Oscar-winner A.R.Rahman's all-female live orchestra for International Women's Day, Filipino band Ben&Ben, and a live comedy act at the Terra Auditorium.

2. Expo 2020 Waterfall Feature

Here's another must-see! Situated between Al Wasl Plaza and Jubilee Park, this waterfall is truly unique - because it flows backwards. Visitors can dip their feet into the cool waters as the waterfall cascades into the opposite direction, disappearing into the stone.

At night, watch the water feature light up with gorgeous illusions and colourful streaks.
