A pedestrian-only tunnel crossing the Bund, this fun and unique form of public transportation is a pricey but quick way to get across the river on foot. The experience is a bit reminiscent of a Disney Tomorrowland attraction.

It's so bad that it doesn't even fit into the so-bad-it's-good category, however it does take you from the Bund to the base of the Oriental Pearl Tower. Other than that, there's nothing really going for it. It really is as crap as the reviews say.

As others have said it's just a tunnel with an underwhelming and epilepsy-inducing light display. Really not worth the price. If you need to get to Pudong take the metro or the ferry: it's much cheaper.

If you are also from Europe this might not really be what you were expecting - I kind of thought to would be a walk through tunnel (you can tell how much research I'd done...). Basically it's a few minutes in a little underground car (about the same size as a cable car) and lots of flashing lights as you... More

This is very very random but that's not necessary a bad thing! We were going to the other side of the bund anyway and this was different that the metro and we quite enjoyed it too! I would say do the one way ticket as once you have seen it you will be satisfied as it is a glorified underground... More

I'm sure lots of reviews will say this is awful, but it was just so strange and cheesy I had to love it! The flashing lights, the Enya-style music, the arm waving tube men, the non-sensical voiceovers.... EVERYONE WHO GOES TO SHANGHAI MUST DO THIS!

There was truly nothing to see on this, the concourse in Chicago O'Hare has a better light display. Cross over the bridge instead and maybe get a good picture or two.

My friend really wanted to do this so we did, but I had a feeling it was going to be bad (and boy was I right). She had fun with the cheesy lights, but I thought it was tacky and overpriced, certainly not worth almost $10. We had fun joking about how bad the ride was at least I guess.... More

Honestly, I still don't know what that was - but at the end I don't regret it. It was weird and funny and overall an enjoyable and unique way to cross the river. Is it overpriced, sure. But in the grand scheme of things it isn't terrible. Where else but in Shanghai would you wander into something like this off... More

Well, what can I say? It's just a tunnel with some light effects to reach the Bund; it's absolutely not worth queing for and it's definitely pricey, considering that you can cross the channel by metro for 1/20 of the price....

This short journey under the Huangpu River from either side makes for a treat of a difference. while the journey is short the use of the music and colours makes it a fast and pleasant trip. I would have liked the trip to take more time as it was all over too soon for me.
