The boat ride for about 50 min takes you down towards sea and back. The view of city tall buildings on the banks with a lots of colourful lighting is very beautiful.

walking along the river in the evening with many locals was very interesting and friendly, on the financial district side, was not hassled and there were many families with children and it felt very safe, I think the Bund side is not so pleasant, tourists being pestered over there.

To take cruise your, always good to find and take pictures on big land marks. When u see the big buildings, u feel impressed. Not be able to fully reflect on films.

We took a boat down this river and there are plenty to choose from. I suggest that if you want to have a good view and not get pushed around too much by other passengers, that you pay a little bit more to go onto a boat with a private observation deck which is limited to very few people and...

This area is interesting by day but take a night time river cruise and you will enjoy a wonderful light show. The buildings compete with one another for unusual architecture and colorful lighting. The skyline looks like an ultra modern Manhattan skyline. You will not be disappointed!

We had a one hour cruise in the evening, and was able to take a lot of beautiful photos. There is a long wait in line, and they charge if you want a seat in the upper deck. We just stood and took photos.

Shanghai's smog hazes out the daytime skyline along the river, so I would definitely spend the time to trek to the other side of the river and see LuJiaZui at night. The reflection of the lights off the water and skies is breathtaking. Best view of modern Shanghai!

Highly recommend seeing Shanghai's night lights, on a Huangpu river cruise. I was part of an organised tour group and we paid approx. 150 yuan. ($30 AUD). Well worth the trip, approx. 1 hour and beautiful cruise/ferry boats! The lights at night are absolutely fantastic! Bar, snacks, drinks and toilets on board. Terminal is very well organised, too. A must... More
