EXHIBIT: Visitors enter through a pair of sculptures from the country’s signature Junkanoo carnival, symbolizing a dragon and illustrating the friendship between China and the Bahamas. Visitors will then pass a reception desk and have the opportunity to peruse the Pavilion on either side. On the left side, the sloop structure carries information about the economic prosperity of the Bahamas as well as the history of the country, whereas on the right further Junkaroo sculptures and videos show the fun side of tourism and the natural beauty of the Bahamas. On the floor of the Pavilion is a map of the Bahamas while on the back wall is a gigantic beach mural, showing the visitor what the Bahamas are best known for. Along the back wall, artificial coconut palms and white sands give the illusion of walking along a beautiful Bahamian beach.

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.

Note: This Pavilion was located in the Caribbean Community Joint Pavilion.
