A new look for our maps

Today we launched a new standardised look for our four city sites ExploreShanghai, ExploreBeijing, ExploreGuangzhou and the brand new ExploreHK.

The navigation bar at the top of the screen has been simplified to give you quick access to the two most popular areas of the site: the interactive map and “pedia”.


The other navigation options can be found in the “More” dropdown. You can contact us, or quickly jump to the map for another city.


If you go directly to the root of a site (for example http://www.exploreshanghai.com/ we’ll now automatically detect from your browser if you’d prefer the English or Chinese version of the map. If you want to switch, just use this dropdown in the upper right. There’s also quick access to help in any language.


Behind the scenes we’ve made some major changes to integrate all four metro maps (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong), and added support for additional languages, so making improvements to the maps in the future should be much quicker and easier. Look out for more announcements in the next few months.

ExploreMetro makes Asia’s best metro maps. Find out about our apps for iPhone and apps for Android!

    Thanks for updating, the one problem is, that the page is shown not very correctly now, probably because of the AdobeFlashPlayer: but I have installed the newest one and cannot listen to the station’s pronunciation 🙁
    I’m talking about this page http://exploreshanghai.com/metro/ When I push on the name of any station the triangle in the upper right corner is not loaded at all, and I cannot enjoy the girl’s wonderful voice 🙁
