The CIIE is bringing the world to visitors, where 64 nations are showcasing their heritage, history and hidden gems. Let’s check out the highlights of the China Pavilion!
1. Learning Chinese History The Fun Way
The China pavilion is a celebration of watershed moments and major milestones since 1949. But history doesn’t have to be boring and thanks to interactive, immersive and innovative technologies, the China Pavilion is a big hit with many visitors.
2. Flight Simulator Excites Visitors
The Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC), the manufacturer of the C919, China’s first passenger jetliner, has brought a flight simulator to the pavilion much to the delight of aviation enthusiasts!
Visitors get a chance to be the pilot, operating the thrust levers, move the joystick around, fully immersing themselves in the flight experience!
3. Wonders Under The Ocean
If you want to explore the ocean depths, you can hop on the manned submersible Shenhai Yongshi, or Deep-Sea Warrior. The vessel can descend to 4,500 meters below the water’s surface where you can see vibrant marine life. A VR headset and controllers will bring you all the way to the seabed in a journey that will take your breath away!
4. FAST Brings Sounds Of The Universe To CIIE
Now China can really hear what is out there in the universe, thanks to FAST, or Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope. It’s the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope and its job is to detect sounds from space. It’s so far picked up mysterious signals and noise from dying stars. VR technology at the pavilion allows a closer look at the mega facility located deep in the mountains of Guizhou Province in southwest China.
