There are several ways to enjoy the river. The land crabs can enjoy it from the Riverwalk on either side of the river. You can book a dinner cruise or take the Dongdong Ferry for a whopping 2rmb. Perhaps not the most comfortable way but the price is hard to beat.

Go to the middle of the bund, purchase tickets for 7pm night cruise, proceed to the departure area. It's a long walk. Then once riding, take the upper deck floor and grab a seat and enjoy the light show on both the bund and pudong ends.

We were living in a hotel on the Bund and the Ferry wharf was within walking distance. Ticketing and boarding was very well organised. It is amazing how beautifully the modern buildings of Shanghai are lit up at night. Each one has a different colour scheme / theme. There are many paddle steamers, ferry boats and even what looked like... More

We took a boat down the river. The view from both sides of the boat were interesting. The best time to go is at night on a clear night when you can enjoy the amazing city lights

We really enjoyed walking along the Huangpu River to do some people watching, take photos and just check out the city of Shanghai. There aren't a lot of things to do for free and it's a great way to pass the time and get a nice sense of the place. The architecture is amazing on both sides of the river... More

I would recommend every tourist to visit this place. An elegant riverfront at The Bund gives an ecstatic view of Steel Shanghai and thrilling view of vessels taking turn to maintain the course in river.

Walking along the river afforded my wife and me some really great views of the city architecture, including the Oriental Pearl, "bottle opener" building, the tallest building in Shanghai and the old architecture as well. Many boats floating up and down the river including tourist boats and commercial boats as well. It was nice to see the river active and... More

Guess what...we went there for 2 times. The first time is on Friday (January,02nd) but since it was a public holiday, the situation on board was like a wet market. Too crowded until there's no room for tripod and my video ended up like an earthquake footage. Then we decided to go back the next day. Luckily it was very... More

Get to the top of the boat asap. The seats inside are not spectacular and you will be serenaded by an annoying loud speaker that announces all of the buildings in Chinese only. The televisions around the boat will have the English translation if you really care to know the statistics/history of the buildings along the river. The prices of... More
