The cruise was not initially included in our itinerary as we had booked through an agency. It's a must-visit as the skyline looks beautiful in the night. You get to see all the lights on the buildings along the river which is not possible otherwise. The river divides old and new shanghai so you get to see both sides.

The only cruise on the river worthwhile taking is the longest one which takes you all he way down to the confluence of where the Huang Pu River meets the Yangtze River and the East China sea. You can actually see the three bodies of water coming together. At this juncture, the Yangtze River is so broad it is impossible... More

Night boat cruise on the river was a good chance to see the city in a colorful and beautiful way. It looked like a view taken from a Disney movie.

Strikingly stunning experience in Shanghai City which is better to be done at night to view the exquisitely amazing scenery of the city.🌃

The Huangpu River, better known as the 'Mother River' by local Chinese stretches forever along the famous Bund. We were lucky enough to have a great view of this river from our apartment at Fraser Suites. The amount of barges going up and down delivering raw materials each day is amazing too! There are ample walkways along this magnificent river... More

The river cruise (1 hour) shows the old anf new in Shanghai. It's a nice way to see the main parts of the city without all the walking.

Did the trip during the day, it's really busy with all different sort of craft and fascinating to see the mixture of cargo and pleasure boats. Great views onto the Pudong side with the modern buildings and the historic buildings on the city side of the river. One criticism of the trip is that you pay one price to do... More

Quite spectacular to see the contrasting sides of the city so clearly, the stately and majestic Bund juxtaposed against the Pudong almost science fiction like modernity mirrored in the water sparkling with light. The iconic Pearl Tower is what draws the eye on the Pudong side, all the rest is merely background music.

Summary: This river is nicely scaped and runs through the center of the city. Ship traffic is high so it's fun to watch the mesmerizing comings and goings on the water. The north side of the river has old Shanghai and the south side has new Shanghai. This river is not for swimming. Enjoy it from the shore or from... More
