I had visited Shanghai for two times. The first time by 2004, we visited The Bund at night and took a cruise to enjoy the beautiful nite view. The journey took about 1 hour. The second time we came Shanghai by Mac 2014, we went to Bin Jiang Da Dao (滨江大道), just opposite The Bund. I felt that Huangpu River... More

Busy to get on to but once you're on the boat you can watch the lights in Shanghai sparkle from the boat. Very beautiful on a nice evening to take in the sites of the city without all the crowds for a while.

You really haven't see Shanghai or felt its magic until you've leaned against the seawall and peered up and down the winding Huangpu River that snakes its way through the heart of Shanghai. The river traffic is busy as tourist boats and tankers move up and down the river. It's a neat scene and will be one of your best... More

We went on an afternoon cruise and it was very nice. If you sit on one side of the boat you get to see both sides of the river in detail. I would recommend an evening cruise as the lights will be spectacular but the day cruise was nice too. There are snacks and drinks available to buy on board.

I think this is the most lasting image of Shanghai. The cruise along the river gives you a spectacular view of the skyscrapers and the lights. We enjoyed it extremely despite the rain and wind the views were extraordinary. It is a good idea to get on the boat early.

This is a must just to see the amazing lights and building in Pudong. Beware that it gets very very crowded and can be a little intimidating. If you want to see great views across the Bund, from the Puxi side, try the Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World or the Hyatt on the Bund. From the Pudong side, you... More

Luckily the perpetual smog of Shanghai does not effect the fabulous light show of the futuristic sky scrapers of The Bund. The lights are spectacular and it is well worth the hassle of getting onto one of the ferries with what seamed like about 400 Chinese tourists.

Seriously, the view on land is FREE, although quite crowded, but you don't have to pay to see it. When you take a cruise on the river, it's expensive, it's also crowded and sometimes you have to fight your way (and lose) through hoards of Chinese tourists to have a good place to stand and see the view on the...

The beautiful monuments of Shanghai can be seen on both sides of the river as you take a cruise in the late afternoon or evening, though if you speak any other language other than Chinese, you will never be able to find from where and when the cruise starts!!unless u want to pay a hefty sum to take a guided...

This river bisects Shanghai. It is not particularly clean but it was important in the development of the city as all rivers are.
