Shanghai Hop On Hop Off

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather
 Plan your Shanghai tour?  Shanghai has taken one step ahead of Beijing in introducing the western hop on hop off sightseeing bus into Shanghai Bus Tour market. Shanghai Spring Tour, a local tour company now manages the “vernacular” hop on and hop off open double-decker buses in Shanghai.

Where to get on a double decker bus?
There are quite some spots where you can get on a double decker bus.  As far as I know, there is a bus stop at No. 100, People’s Avenue (Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall).
停靠位置:人民大道100号,公交线49路并站。

The open top decker city sightseeing tours have been carefully selected to give you a glimpse of Shanghai’s culture and city landscape. The loop trips take you around two and half hours. If you are a newcomer to Shanghai, it is advisable to take a loop Shanghai Bus Tour.

    Hello Natalia,

    Actually East Nanjing Road is one of the stops for Hop on Hop off. You just walk to the east direction from your hotel along Nanjing Road. You will find the Hop On Hop off at the stop of East Nanjing Road, just east of the Nanjing Walking Street.

    Hi,
    In your honest opinion, which is better the Big Bus or the Spring Tour?
    Thanks, appreciate reply soonest as we are going to Shanghai in a couple of weeks from now.

  4. admin says:

    Hello Fara P Gualberto,

    Personally, I prefer Srping Tour Bus. It is worth your money, but with more Chinese tourists on board. It is operatedly by a local company – Spring Tour, also a large and reputable company. Just for you reference.

    By the way, on the streets, you will see more spring tour buses than Big Bus buses. Have a good time in Shanghai!

  5. sarah williams says:

    How far away is the Spring Tour Bus stop from the Four Seasons Pudong please? Do you hop on and hop off the Spring Tour bus or do you just ride around? If it stops, how long does it stop at each stop? Why is it so much cheaper than the Big Bus tour? Does it cover the same places? thanks

  7. C. Scott says:

    If I understand correctly, the Big Bus is not a hop on and Hop off tour. You just sit on the bus and see things. Is the Spring Tour a Hop On Hop Off?

    If so, Where is the closest stop to Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel at 159 South He Nan Road?

    Thanks very much!

    Hello, where can I book online tickets for the shanghai city sightseeing bus tour (the one that costs 30 CNY)? Every website I go to leads me to a flight booking website. Thanks!

  16. Daniel says:

    Dear Jane,

    It seems it is not convenient to book online. You may go to http://pages.english.ctrip.com/tours/all-tours/shanghai-tours/tickets.html, but the bus tour you want is not listed there.

    I find the Chinese version of the tour ( 47 CNY, not 30 CNY), check out the link ( in Chinese ):

    http://huodong.ctrip.com/activity/2692159.html ( the price starts from 27 CNY,the actual price is 47 CNY).
