Getting There

Take the free shuttle from Botanical Garden Metro Station. You can also drive, but be ready for stops and starts, though DND will not charge from 8 am to 10 am for those going to Noida and 5 pm to 9 pm for those coming to Delhi

Where to park

There is ample parking. The organisers have taken up a large field that can hold 13,000 cars. It’s free

Entry gates

Avoid No. 1, it’s only for VIPs. And also No. 9 and 10, which are service gates


If you intend to spend the day at the Expo, do ensure you buy your food court card early enough as no cash is accepted at the counters serving food. The huge lines at lunch hour implied that not only was the wait for food long, getting the card was a nightmare in itself.
