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.

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
