We arrived around 7pm at the ticket office and we departed at around 7:40? I made sure that we got there early so we could get a good spot on the boat because you can choose to sit inside and look out the window or go on the deck. I wanted to make sure I got a spot right on... More

Walking along the River, around the Bund areas, you will find some of the most iconic buildings in Shanghai that either have historical or economical significances.

Fantastic travelling down the Bund at night with it all lit up. Would definitely recommend as more relaxing than trying to walk along the promenade.

The 50 minute ride along the river is a good show of Shanghai's architecture. The ride is pleasant, the view is good. My only recommendation is to go with a tour guide as there is no explanation of the buildings. It would be nice for the company to make a brochure or at least have some pictures on the cabin... More

Bought ticket for the river cruise, costs about £10. Thought the boat would depart from immediately above ticket office, but you have to walk down the road about 500 yards before you see a sign for the entrance. Very well organised, the boat itself is great, you can pay an extra £5 on board for a VIP upgrade which gives... More

This river is a very busy commercial waterway, with a continual stream of barges and larger ships passing through the city. We had an evening cruise to see the lovely display of lights on the various buildings but we found it to be a little disconcerting when we realised that our pleasure boat was being caught up by a large...

We could see the Haingpu river from our hotel so it was a natural transition to be on a boat at night to really experience Shanghai. Definitely would recommend!!

The light on the skyscraper is so nice and beautiful to see on the night. The trip on the boat is nice

Great at night when all the skyscrapers are lit up and looking like Blackpool gone made. Just stunning.

If you don't have long in Shanghai make this a 'must do', it lasts about an hour and the views are just incredible. We went on a Sunday and lots of Chinese families were down below having their picnics, just us silly westerners boiling in the mid day sun up top but the views are just incredible.
