To Expo Or Not

Well, I'm finally able to take a whole 5 weeks vacation in September/October and looking forward to travel to some countries in Asia including my first trip to China. At this time I'm planning 7 to 10 days for China. Beijing and Shanghai are on my preliminary itinerary. The Shanghai Expo will still be around in the first week of September, however some friends of mine are telling me to avoid the Expo and save the day for other sights. They say that the Expo is merely pavilions showcasing businesses from countries all over the world. It is more suited for people planning or currently doing business in China rather than for sight seeing visitors. I'm not sure what to make of the my friends suggestion since I've not been to China before and there is so much buzz about the Expo and that I should not miss it. 

So should I skip the Expo? Or maybe even save Shanghai for another trip and avoid the congestion? Then I hear I should not miss "Shangrila" Yunnan. Where should the priorities be for one interested in seeing scenic China in 10 days?
