CPC history on show as red tour bus launched

A NEW tour bus line was launched in Shanghai yesterday to take passengers around more than 20 local historical sites to learn the history of the Communist Party of China.

The first “Party History Bus Class” set off from the Site of the First National Congress of the CPC in downtown Huangpu District yesterday morning.

The red-colored bus with over 20 seats stops at the Yuyangli, or the Preparation Office of the First National Congress of the CPC, the Site of the Second National Congress of the CPC, the Monument of the May 30th Movement, Chen Yi Square and the Pudong Expo site.

Volunteer tour guides, recruited from local outstanding young people from all walks of life, introduce the history of each site and tell stories about the Party’s founding, China’s development and the Reform and Opening Up.

The bus tour will focus on the “CPC’s century-old history in Shanghai,” featuring historical sites on both sides of the Huangpu River, said Tang Jingsong, director of the publicity department of the Pudong New Area, one of the organizers.

A single tour takes about an hour and a half, including a 50-minute bus tour and 30 minutes of video activities.

Some historical movies such as the “Children of Troubled Times,” whose theme song later became China’s national anthem, will be played on the way. Passengers can get off the bus and visit the sites.

The bus will run six shifts, two in the morning and four in the afternoon, every weekday through the end of 2021.
