( 2010-05-26 )

A new waterway night tour at the Shanghai World Expo Garden will be open to the public starting Monday night, local newspaper Oriental Morning Post reported.

For the visitor's convenience, two ferries will be used from the 13 Expo waterway tourist ferries in order to operate the waterway tour within the Expo Garden. The nightly tours begin at 7:15 p.m., 7:45 p.m., and 8:15 p.m. respectively at the M2 wharf (near the Japan Pavilion).

Each tour lasts 40 minutes, and costs 30 yuan (4.40 US dollars) per person, according to Li Dejing, deputy director of the Expo waterway transport office.

"This route is a golden tourist line on the Huangpu River, among which visitors can watch colorful images from the biggest LED screen in Puxi Garden and also view the China Pavilion, the Expo Axis and other pavilions on the way back to the M2 wharf," said Li Dejing.

Furthermore, other ferries in charge of transferring visitors out of the Expo Garden to four water gates from wharfs M1, M2, and M3 will continue to operate from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. every night. Li Dejing said an official was considering group tickets at 50 yuan per person for this trip.
