Transit guidelines for 10th China Flower Expo
The 10th China Flower Expo will be held on Chongming Island from May 21 to July 2. During the event period, a temporary traffic control area will be set up around the Dongping National Forest Park, and those driving to the expo are required to book a parking spot in advance, according to Shanghai's transport commission.
It is recommended that people join a travel group or take public transport.
People can visit the expo via the following means:
1. Participate in a tour group.
2. From the city center, take public transport such as the flower expo designated lines and land-and-water transportation lines.
3. Make a reservation for a parking spot at expo park if you plan to drive. Install ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) in advance to reduce waiting time.
4. After landing on the island by other means of transportation, transfer to an expo bus, expo tourism line or a taxi to get to expo park.
