Today's Oriental Morning Post sums up the Shanghai Expo with an aerial drawing of part of the Expo site and a line from Tang Dynasty poet Wang Bo: "For close friends within the four seas, the ends of the earth are but a neighboring village."

The paper features a ten-page wrap-up of the festival that covers the closing ceremony, significant achievements, and implications for the future.

Today's paper also includes "To Shanghai," an eighty-page special section containing 133 letters to the people of Shanghai from an international assembly of Expo .
