China Trip – Shanghai: Ferry From Pudong To Huangpu 上海轮渡 (Day 4) – Penang has the ferry, Hong Kong has the ferry, New York has the ferry, Shanghai too has ferry service connecting Huangpu and Pudong in between the Huangpu River. Brother and I were at Pudong area and we wanted to go back to Huangpu area where the old Shanghai city is and from there, we wanted to enjoy the night view of beautiful Pudong Shanghai, so we went to take a ride on the Shanghai Ferry.
We couldn’t find the ferry at first, it’s not clear on the Google Maps and we actually went the wrong way. Ended we took a cab to the ferry terminal located on Tangqiao Road. The ferry will take you to The Bund and it costs only RMB2. You can pay with Shanghai Transportation Card too!
Well, the ferry is just for ferry, nothing much cool about it, unlike Hong Kong’s or Penang’s which has a long history about the ferry. The Shanghai’s Ferry is enclosed and has heater in it. One weird thing is that it’s call 轮渡 (Lun2 Du4) instead of 渡輪 (Du4 Lun2) in Mandarin. We normally call it Du4 Lun2 in my hometown – Penang.
It’s pretty fast, takes about 10 minutes+ to reach the other side of the river. And then we started capturing photos and enjoying the view of Shanghai. Share with you in the next post. =)
