Head out to the river in the evening. Go on a boat ride and just soak in the surroundings. It's a great place to go with a loved one, family or just by yourself. A great place to click pictures.

You must take the river cruise at dusk. Watching the buildings light ups and seeing all the colors and flashing lights was fantastic. You could really get a taste of the Shanghai skyline, buildings, old and new architecture and modern technology that continues to grow. Be warned that you need to be one of the 1st to get on the...

Enjoyable boat ride. You get a closeup of the many buildings along the river. Take this ride close to sunset and you will get some excellent pictures of the changing horizon in brilliant colors.

Brillinatly lighted buildings and different types of boats taking groups on tour. It was a crowded boat but we could still manage to take a lot of pictures.

Was so amazing to do a cruise on the river. We literally got on the boat before all the lights of the building came on. Was beautiful to see when everything was lit up.

You have to visit during both the day and night as both offer entirely different experiences. A leisurely stroll from either side is free and a memory you will keep for ever. It does get very crowded but well worth it.

It is a very busy river, tons to take in, barges, cruise ships and little family owned working boats.

The river itself is a hive of activity both commercial and recreational. A steady stream of barges and bulk carriers operating in both directions, ferries transporting passengers, smaller luxury pleasure cruisers scooting about. We visited the river during the day then returned for a night cruise where buildings on both sides are transformed into lightscapes. Very impressive. The tour was... More

I'm so very glad I found my second wind after hopping off my 14-hour flight to Shanghai to see the sights along the Huangpu River at dusk! I was fortunate to have a guide (JJ) from China Odyssey Tours accompany me on the riverboat cruise, as she was able to point out different buildings to me and what they were... More
