RP Pavilion voted most relaxing at Shanghai Expo

Posted on November 4th, 2010 under The Good Balita

The Philippine pavilion was chosen as the “Most Relaxing Pavilion” during the recently concluded 2010 Shanghai Expo.

Shanghai Morning Post, one of the city’s biggest news dailies, announced in an article published last Oct. 11 the people’s choice as best pavilions at the EXPO through an online survey conducted among its thousands of readers.

The survey results were featured in Expo Morning Post’s Oct. 11, 2010 article titled “Expo Best of the Best, People’s Choice Awards: Pavilion Edition.”

A subsidiary of the Shanghai Morning Post, the Expo Morning Post, which was published daily, had a circulation of 500,000 available at all information counters throughout the World Expo 2010 grounds and accommodation facilities.

Dubbed the “Expo Oscars,” the survey results included nine other awards won by the top and most popular pavilions such as that of China for being the most attention-grabbing, Saudi Arabia as the most sought after, Germany as the most fun and interactive, Urban Best Practices Area as the most futuristic and Joint African Pavilion as the most historical/ natural.

The Most Relaxing Pavilion award given to the Philippine pavilion was based mainly on its distinct spa and massage offering to visitors, especially the hilot, a traditional Filipino style of therapeutic deep-tissue massage to relieve stressed muscles.

It was one of the most popular attractions at the pavilion, generating the most votes among online survey participants.

Aside from the massage and spa offering, which was operated by world-famous Chi Spa of the Shangri-La chain resorts/hotels located in the Philippines, the Philippine pavilion also featured musical shows and an array of souvenirs and Filipino delicacies.
