Hosting the 2010 World Expo left Shanghai a legacy of improved infrastructure, plus some visually striking Expo pavilions. The World Fair's centerpiece, the 207-foot-high China Pavilion, remains in place, as do the national pavilions of Saudi Arabia, Spain, Italy, France, and Russia. The most dramatic remaining structure is the oyster shell–shaped Mercedes-Benz Arena. Formerly the Expo Performance Center, it reopened in late 2010 as China's first sports venue with corporate branding. Inside the spaceshiplike building is an 18,000-seat arena for sports, musical, and theatrical events; an ice rink; a music club; a shopping mall; and an exhibition center.—Gary Bowerman
