China Trip – Shanghai: On The City Sightseeing Bus #1 上海都市观光车 (Day 4) – It’s time to hop on the 30RMB City Sightseeing bus to go a little tour around Shanghai. Well, if you were to tour on the City Sightseeing bus, be sure to wake up early, sit on the bus to tour the whole city first before getting off at any stop.

We thought of using the City Sightseeing bus as our mode of transport around attractions but it’s not really useful as the frequency of the bus is very long. Just take the bus around, listen to the introduction, then forget about the bus anymore. Walk on foot or Metro to attractions as Shanghai is designed for walking.

We started off at East Nanjing Road, passed by Waibaidu Bridge, The Bund, and we alighted at Yu Yuan Garden, guess what, that’s end of our trip on the City Sightseeing Bus because we wanted to get back on to go to another location, but then it’s over the operation hour and we have to get back onto the bus the next day.

The bus ticket, notice the edge being cut, it’s a mark that you have got on board.
