Shanghai Metro offers new city passes to alleviate stress
Many visitors may have experienced the frustration of getting lost among the skyscrapers at Lujiazui while struggling to find a place to buy tickets for the city's tourist attractions. Shanghai Metro has come up with a way to solve such troubles, and all at a fairly low price.
The Metro operator issued a set of six Metro City Passes which would cover both the Metro fare and entry for some of the iconic tourist attractions in Shanghai, such as the top skywalk of Jin Mao Tower, or a ticket for the cruise tour on the Huangpu River.
The price of these city passes range from 99 yuan (US$ 13.9) to 248 yuan, and visitors can purchase them from the Metro Daduhui app. All city passes contain a one-day Metro pass which is active from midnight to midnight.
For families, the Metro also offers some interesting experiences with the city pass. One is at Hongqiao International Airport, where children can work as volunteers at the check-in and security screening area, while the other is at Yangshupu Road Station of Metro Line 4, where children get a chance to be a one-day "little dentist" to better understand how to keep their teeth clean.
The price for the experiences is 228 and 248 yuan.
