Yangtze trip

July 18th, 2009

We got back from Hong Kong via Shenzhen on July 13th, and had a week to recover from all the recent traveling. On the 18th we took a three-hour cruise up the HuangPu to where it meets the muddy Yangtze, the longest river in China, apparently just 15 miles longer than the Mississippi.

It was definitely worth it, though we had some difficulty finding the correct dock behind all the shoreside construction for the World Expo in Shanghai. We found it just in time, and enjoyed the view of Pudong on the way out and the Bund on the way back. The cost was 150 RMB.

This is the lighthouse that marks the boundary between the two rivers — I didn’t have my camera, so here’s the credit.
