Beautiful River running in the heart of the city and has an excellent riverfront called The Bund. Many lines of the Shanghai Metro cross underneath the river.

We did this trip during the day. There is a commentary, in Chinglish, of the building and what you are passing together with some history in the area. Would think an evening cruise would be amazing but we simply ran out of time.

I love rivers and I loved the Hangpu. The river is the main artery of the city and is truly alive 24/7. Sit and watch the world go bye from the promenade as sun sets.

We made this cruise at night and it was fantastic with the city lights and great photos. It was a bit short than expected and there were a lot of people but we were seated at the front row and during the cruise you go up to the deck to take photos .. The city is beautiful at night

Good to take the cruise during evening, especially after sunset. The lights from the buildings along the bund on both Pudong and Puxi are great.

The view is pretty beautiful at night with a lot of lights from the skyscrapers. Some of my friends said it is the best night view in the world compare to Paris. In the morning it's a bit dirty.

Most visitors to Shanghai will visit the Bund, and the Huangpu River is central to a Bund Visit. Probably best not to focus on the river, but do focus on the river as a charming backdrop to the Bund. The river presents modern Shanghai in a very positive view, and the night river views of Shanghai are best.

Not the blue Danube, but nor is that any more. The views on both Puxi and Pudong sides are dramatic, overwhelming and romantic. No place like this on earth. Must be seen from both sides
