A NEW Huangpu River cruise tour route for the 10th China Flower Expo on Chongming Island will be launched in May.

Ships will depart from the Shiliupu Dock in Huangpu District and take passengers along the Huangpu during the day and at night, with Shanghai delicacies and the opportunity to take in beautiful landscapes of blossoming flowers.

The route was introduced yesterday by the newly established Shanghai Jiushi Travel Group Co, the first wholly state-owned tourism group in Shanghai.

The flower expo will take place on Chongming Island for the first time from May 21 to July 2.

The one-day tour will set sail beginning in mid-May and take about 3-1/2 hours to cruise from Shiliupu Dock to Chongming, said Dong Luo, Jiushi Travel executive director and general manager.

The tour will include two meals, including a night buffet, and offer passengers the chance to appreciate the industrial relics and architecture along the Huangpu River, Dong revealed.

The price of the cruise it yet to be decided but tickets are expected to go on sale in April.

Meanwhile, the first new-energy sightseeing ship on the Huangpu will be launched next year.

The completely electric ship will feature low energy consumption and little noise.

Construction of the ship is scheduled to begin in May and it is expected to debut in the summer of 2022.
