Nanjing Metro (MRT) System Map

October 23rd, 2011 No comments

I just traveled to Nanjing couple days ago. Too bad, i don’t have a chance to try the MRT (Metro) there. Actually i have seen the Metro signboard when i walk around Nanjing that time, but when i follow the sign, i could find the Metro Station. Nanjing Metro (MRT) has just opened in 2005. It’s quite new compared to Beijing Subway and Tianjin Metro. But the line has been built is only 2 line (similar to Tianjin Metro). So we couldn’t only depend to this Metro to go every place in Nanjing. The fare for Nanjing metro is varies and it’s distance-based. Minimum fares is 2 yuan (USD $0.30) for one journey.

So, after ask around couple times in Tianjin, i finally chosen one travel agent and decide to take a trip with my girlfriend to South China (南方 Nan Fang). Total cost for this trip is RMB 1,854 ($ 290). In this trip, we will visit 4 city in South China, which are 南京 Nanjing, 黄山 Huangshan, 杭州 Hangzhou and 上海 Shanghai in 5 nights 6 days. We departed from my dormitory around 6 o’clock to 天津西站 (Tianjin West Railway Station) by taxi. We spent RMB 58 for the taxi and arrived at Railway Station around 6:30. Actually, this is the first time i visit Tianjin West Railway station, because i usually go to the other station 天津站 (Tianjin Railway Station) to go to 北京 Beijing.
