Subway Line 1: Fujin Road Station
Today Nik and I went on a mini adventure to the northern end of Line 1, Shanghai Metro’s major north-south subway line. We often talk about spending days randomly exploring via public transportation, but this was our first time to actually follow through in Shanghai. (Here’s when we randomly rode in Hong Kong) After the train emerged from under the city at the Circus World stop, we saw tons of mid-rise residential complexes, a few super highways, dozens of shopping malls and three or four shipping yards. The views weren’t spectacular, and everything was extremely mundane….but now we know! Regardless, it was a fun afternoon of riding in air conditioned comfort while people watching sweat-free.
Nik has also posted some photos. End of the Line: Fujin Rd (my favorite is the man washing something in the nasty canal)
