    There are sightseeing buses No 1 and 2 in Zhuhai. Two questions:
    1. Where to board the sight-seeing Bus 1 and Bus 2?
    2. Can we drop-off at the tourist attractions and board again the next bus? Is it a loop service?
    3. If we can drop off and board again, do we pay the fare again? Do you have all-day fare ticket?
    4. If no all-day ticket, what is the fare if we drop-off at each tourist attraction?
