Night Tour on Jinjiang River

Finally, the long-awaited Night Tour on Jinjiang is opened for trial operation today!

I still remember the sightseeing boat’s debut during the Spring Festival this year. Since then, I've been looking forward to taking a boat tour on the Jinjiang River in the twilight and enjoying the beautiful scenery of Chengdu along the way! Now, with the trial operation is opened, we can take boat tour again~

I've collected all information about this trial operation for you! So now I've got only one question, "I have an extra ticket. Would you like to join me?"
