River cruise features local specialities

A new 90-minute sightseeing cruise on the Huangpu River will be launched tomorrow.

The route will be operated by the No. 2 Sightseeing Cruise Ship of Huangpu River which has a capacity of 450.

It is a four-star ship accredited by the city’s tourism and transport authorities based on indexes such as service, environment, safety and hygiene.

The cruise features traditional Shanghainese dishes and will run during the day and at night.

It will be the first time a cruise on the Huangpu River has included a lunch after many tourists expressed a desire for a more relaxed and slower tour.

During the tour, tourists can enjoy views of Lujiazui and the Bund, and Nanpu and Yangpu bridges.

Dishes such as “eight treasures in hot sauce” or babaolajiang, a Shanghai-style dish made from eight ingredients including pork, peanuts and bamboo, and Shanghai-style fried pork chops will be served.

The ship will operate from 12pm to 1:30pm, and 6pm to 7:30pm. It starts from the Cruise Dock of Shiliupu in Huangpu District.

A gift containing Shanghai snacks and souvenirs will be given to passengers after the tour. A daytime tour costs 180 yuan (US$27) per person, and 160 yuan at night.
