The UAE Park in China will be officially opened in December in Nanning, the capital of the Guangxi Zhuang region in southern China.

Dubai Municipality, which is representing the UAE in Expo 2018 China, has participated in the design of the project that will cover an area of 1,700 square metres.

Marwan Al Mohammed, director of General Projects Department at Dubai Municipality said that the visitor's journey to the park begins through the Barajeel area, which reflects the UAE heritage of wind towers.

“A replica of the logo of the upcoming Expo Dubai 2020 is placed in the center of this area. It is proposed to use virtual reality technology, which enables the visitor to follow the stages of the unique architectural development of the UAE,” he said.

A Bedouin tent is also located in the park with heritage and aesthetic elements, such as pottery and falaj (traditional irrigation canal), which is connected to a lake with a traditional wooden bridge, he added..

In this area there will also be an open space with sunken seating facilities, where the visitor will be able to enjoy the Skyline Fountain and the metal formations that form the most important architectural monuments of the UAE such as the Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Zayed Mosque.

The park also contains a mini outdoor theatre with a large screen for the transmission of events such as the UAE National Day celebrations.
