This bridge is a typical late 1800s' Engineering Bridge Iconic Design. I have noticed that the same classic design-format was used in other applications including "for example" another famous one crossing-over the Nile river in Cairo,Egypt.This Garden-bridge was lit up, very pretty. Also, there were a lot of photo shoots being done. Lots of young Chinese brides / models in... More

The roads around the bridge are so busy so there is lots of pollution. Lorries and loads of taxis right next to the pavement. Blocked damned area at time resulting in no river traffic passing underneath. Not as spectacular review walking along the adjacent promenade.

It's really just an ordinary and small bridge but it looks nice at night when lit up in orange. Its best point is the view from it to the financial area and Pearl Tower, which is why so many people congregate on it for photos, including brides. Just don't expect the Sydney Harbour or Golden Gate Bridges.

This might just look like a bridge, but have look at night. When we were there it was lit up, very pretty. Also, there were a lot of photo shoots being done. Lots of young Chinese models in wedding dresses every evening. The walk across the bridge is pleasant with lots of other pedestrian traffic in both directions. Great views... More

Not a very spectacular bridge , but right at the end of the Bund so worth seeing . As with much of Shsnghai looks best at night when illuminated . Some nice views of the Pudong as well as brides having their photos taken.

With just a cursory examination of its history, you can quickly realize why this is more than "just a bridge" to the Chinese and more of a national symbol. Formerly known as "Bridge of Sighs" among other names, its relatively brief 100+ year old history is rife with incidents of foreign resentment, repression, national unification, hope and even assassination.

After walking along the promenade this bridge is at the very end and does provide some nice views of the Pudong financial district. At the end of the day this is just a bridge so you shouldn't expect that much; however, it is easy to get to and you might as well check it out while you are walking along... More

We walked on to see the bridge that was described as an attraction in walking tours, to find a very ordinary looking bridge. Very ordinary as in we have plenty of these types of bridges in Canada and I never knew there was anything special about them. But this one is special to the people of Shanghai. I gave this... More

A part of Shanghai history, this bridge over Suzhou creek--and popular for tourists, but in the end, it's just a bridge
