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.

Not really impressed

A quick way to get from one side to the river to the other. Not cheap at RMB70 for adult (vice versa), you are better off taking a taxi. The "show" is unimpressive.

Took this pathetic excuse of a sightseeing tour today. I live in Shanghai and my brother is visiting from Australia and had seen the signs for it whilst on the Bund and read reviews saying it was cheesy etc. Needed to go from The Bund to Lujiazui where the oriental pearl tower is and we had already took him on...

There is actually not much to say since there is not much to see/do. But let me try to put it this way: - think back of one of those days you went to one of those adventure/family parks like Disney or Europa-Park etc. Now there is always an attraction far in the outer corner of the park, which do...

This is the worst attraction ever if you think you are buying an attraction! The lights, the sounds and the experience is an overpriced joke. But lets look at the whole picture. If you need transportation from let's say the Bund area directly to the other side of the river then this tunnel is very convenient (but still an overpriced... More

though i believe the bund sightseeing tunnel to be slightly overpriced, it is a convenient way of getting across to pudong and quite fun for tourists. would suggest not buying a return as after the first trip, the novelty will have, most certainly, worn off

The tunnel surrounds you with a light show, complemented by music. The experience takes about 5 minutes. Good way to get from east to west.

A surreal experience transporting you under the river. There's some music and lights. I visited out of curiousity. It isn't cheap and really doesn't add anything to your experience of Shanghai but it only takes 10 minutes out of your life!

Waste of time and money! Just 10ish people on a cart going though a lighting show in a tunnel that is extremely short.

Review will be quick: this is just a cable car that takes you to the other side of the river in a matter of minutes. oh, and it costs 70 RMB for the return trip. During the crossing you'll see the light show but it is seriously not worth it. The ride isn't even comfortable. Just avoid it, do yourself... More

If after having read the reviews you're still tempted to experience the delights of the bund sightseeing tunnel, then for gods sake don't buy a return ticket, just go one way for 50 yuan and soak up all 10 minutes of the tacky trip. The boredom level of the staff on duty at the ticket offices and the train entrance... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
