After Starbucks in a Day in Shanghai, and Starbucks in a Day in Beijing, I am thinking and talking about Shanghai Metro in a Day for a long time. The idea first emerges when the Metro Line #6 opened (my visit), but I was not able to really prepare for it. I talked with Wendy for many times, and asked her to be with me.
This morning, I saw Matt’s attempt to explorer Every Metro Station in a Day. Wow. We had exactly the same idea. So I twittered Matt that I will congratulate him for maybe the first person do that, and I will do it again to see whether I can be faster to get there.
Now Shanghai has 147 metro stations – not easy to explore in one day. On average, it takes 2 minutes per station, which means at least 300 minutes (or 5 hours), but most of the journey is round trip, and considering the transition time, it is really hard to do.
Good luck, Matt!
You seem like an expert on the metro. I have a quick question if you dont mind. I will move to a college campus soon, and want to know if you think line 11 will really be finished this year?
Thanks in advance and keep up the good blog.
