This afternoon I was treated to my first ride on the Chengdu subway, and I gotta say: it’s impressive. Modern, clean and overall an extremely smooth ride, literally and figuratively.
I rode from the Sichuan Gymnasium Station (????) to Century City (???) taking pictures all the way. Rather than tell you what it was like, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Overall I’m really impressed with the Chengdu subway and can’t wait to see the impact that it has on the city.
