This is really a good way to see both sides of shanghai, The Bund and Pudong, by going on the cruise you can also see that the tall buildings do continue however also you can see that the river is also a working river catering for not just passenger boats. Just make sure that you take a jacket, in case... More

We probably had a better experience than most on the Huangpu River cruise we took from the dock near the Pearl Tower. We happened to be early for the cruise and lined up as soon as some workers showed up at the gate, so we were one of the first people on and got a good window seat that we... More

I did an evening cruise and it was really crowded.I couldn't have a good view.Even the part of the ship that you could pay more to have a seat was crowded and the view was not that much good. I walked by the bund the evening before the cruise and the view was much better.

I've done the cruise from here before up and down the river, yet i found it much more enjoyable to take the quick shuttle from the bund to the other side in 10mins; I was still able to get afew great pics; I wasn't surrounded by ten million people taking selfies; and at the other end i could get off...

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!

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
