70 million tourists are expected to visit Shanghai for the 2010 World Expo, a huge boom for the local economy. Authorities will introduce 10 classic visitor itineraries in mid April, to meet the needs.

Shanghai's Urban Best Practice Areas have been incorporated into the ten tour packages. Neighboring cities participating in the UBPA project are also covered.

Meanwhile, 24 cities in the Yangtze River Delta Region, plus Huangshan of Anhui Province, have 96 recommended places of interest for tourists to choose from.

Cheng Hongmei, deputy director of Shanghai Municipal Tourism Admin., said, "The ten itineraries are organized under the Expo theme of 'Better city, Better life'. We hope tourists can find out more about the culture and nature of the Yangtze River Delta Region."
