The No. 1 Sightseeing Cruise Ship, the biggest vessel of its kind on the Huangpu River, is back after a major overhaul.
The dragon-shaped ship can accommodate 1,000 passengers and has numerous traditional Chinese cultural touches. Its two-hour tour starts from the Qinhuangdao Road Cruise Dock in Yangpu District, returning to the dock after passing through the Nanpu and Lupu bridges and comes with a bilingual audio guide.
During the tour, tourists can appreciate the magnificent night views of Lujiazui and the Bund, as well as the former 2010 Shanghai World Expo site. The ship operates once daily between 7pm and 9pm, with a buffet dinner included.
The current ticket price is 260 yuan (US$39) per person during trial operations which run through early August; afterward the price will rise to 300 yuan. Tickets can be purchased at the dock and via online travel platforms.
