All roads, Metro and bus routes led to Expo 2020 Dubai on Friday, as it ushered in the world for the greatest show ever. The venue's three giant gates are now open — exactly 2,864 days of meticulous planning, will and self-belief after the UAE won the bid to host the region's first World Expo. 

As Day 1 of the world's greatest show draws to a close, fireworks light up the night sky at The Pointe in Palm Jumeirah.
