We did and evening cruise and it was one of the best experiences in Shanghai. They will take you up to the Bund and you will have a great views, from the ship, of the financial district buildings. Highly recommend!

A cruise to carry you from bund area to the pearl tower. This cruise will always be messy and lots of crowd but difficult to get a seat to sit.

Staff was rude at the ticket counter. The onboat staff spent the whole trip chatting out loud and hanging out with music just behind us so we could barely listen to the recording about the places we where passing by; also all the recording was about the right side, so if you are in the left side better memorize the...

Enjoy afternoon cruises here, quite affordable at under Usd10 but no refreshments provided. A nice way to see all the nice buildings along the river without having to walk.

When we finally found it (long walk along the bund) absolutely worth it. 100 yuan ($20aud).for an hour long cruise. Good atmosphere. Great sights with all the lights. Gives you a different perspective. Would recommend!

We took the City Bus Tour and got off here to take the cruise. Since it was a holiday, it was so crowded. We decided just to look around and not take the cruise at all. Sightseeing was better for us since we were both freezing.

My friend and I got the cruise ticket from Nanjing Road ticket counter. A beautiful bus then transferred us to the Bund from where the cruise starts. It is advisable to go on a night cruise than a day cruise. At night, the city of Shanghai turns so bright as all lights are turned on. The whole city puts on... More

Worthwhile to take a night cruise on the Huangpu River if you have nothing else to do. Nightscape is amazing viewed from the boat. Take a coat in case it gets cold.
