We took a cruise along the river at night. The view is fabulous! Back to 1990s, Shanghai was called Night city in China and i see a reason here.

I came here for first time and this is the must visit place for tourist. I think that the view it's very nice. it's a bit cold and windy at night so make sure you bring your jacket and scarf.

Viewing the Huangpu from either downtown or the Bund, or from the top of the Hyatt, you very quickly realize how busy it is. There is a constant array of moving ships of all kinds, from commercial shipping to sightseeing.

Take a boat trip for about 45 minutes and enjoy the night view of Shanghai. The city is even more beautiful at night and you can have the best view from Huangpu river.

I strongly recommend to enjoy the view from both the sides of the River. But be sure to do this trip in the evening when everything is well lit up. Dusk is the best time for photography. From the West or Puxi side, enjoy the view of modern Shanghai. There are several pay photo booths that offers instant pictures, pictures... More

We did a Nexus tour. Part of our tour was the night river cruise. It is a must see. The Nexus tour was nice, too. Our tour guide blocked the front of the deck for a "private party". Chinese are pushy, so hold your ground. It is nothing to them to push through.
