Shanghai City Day Tour (Yuyuan and S&T Museum)

6-days winter solo backpacking in Mainland China
january 26 -  february 01, 2013 saturday to friday

Shanghai subway has direct connection to airport which begins to operate at 0600H.  My 1st objective for this morning is to book 1st my train ticket bound to Huangshan tonight before doing the city day tour. I went to shanghai railway station with fare at 7 cny ($1) only at line 4 with train interchange from line 2 at guanglan road station and century avenue station. Travel from airport to shanghai railway station took almost 90 minutes, imagine how long would it take if I traveled using a bus/taxi and the fare it consumed.

After purchasing the train ticket with departure time at 2124H on this day and having a breakfast inside the train terminal, I started to Shanghai city day tour in the following format; please take note that everything below was decided in spontaneous manner due to dependency in train departure time.
