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.

I went on the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel when I was on business in SH about 6 years ago. It was bizarre and stupidly expensive, and never in a month of Sundays did I think I'd go back on it. When in Shanghai last month I found myself on the Pudong side on a hot steamy evening with my kids. The... More

Very expensive and a complete nonsense. They say "sightseeing tunnel" but you actually see nothing. Just darkness and some coloured leds or projections with no taste or quality at all. Kids under 6 might enjoy it, though.

The Bund "sightseeing" tunnel is as stupid as everyone says it is. It is a less-than 5 minute trip under the river with strange cheap lighting inside. It's pretty ridiculous that you have to pay for this experience, but if you can appreciate the fact that it gets you across the river quickly then you won't feel too hard done... More

The word 'sightseeing'is totally misleading, it was just an overpriced underground ride from east to west side of the Huangpu river of Shanghai, connecting the bund to pudong near the superbrand mall. You just ride on a cart for few minutes without anything to see, just a cheap and super low tech light show all the way to the other... More

Yes, it's slow and overpriced but it's one of the oddest rides ever so you should take it just to say you did.

Took this trip from the financial district back to the Bund. 50 yuan one way or 70 return. You go in a small car on tracks and see a light show on the way. Good experience I recommend it.

To enjoy this capsule we must go down from the Oriental Pearl Tower southern part at Water Park area, we buy a ticket around CNY45 per person, and we are very enjoy the light attraction at the tunnel until we arrived at the Bund area.

In such a futuristic looking city with the Oriental Pearl Tower, this was a complete joke. It is quite an embarrassment as an attraction or ride of any kind. It is quite low tech and we were bored from the beginning to the end. The fact that they try to sell it with a story line makes it even worse.... More

This really is quite lame. It's a convenient way to cross the river, but consider it costs Y50 per person when a taxi might cost only Y20 in total. The display in the tunnel might be impressive to anyone who's never seen an electric light before, but otherwise it's a complete yawn. We made the misteak of paying for a... More

The ride was a major let down - and I had read many of the previous reviews. In the future, if I felt like spending the money (30 Yuan per person one way), I would only use this as a quick way to Pudong. The laser light show was not impressive, but the cable car was fun and spacious. One... 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.
