wasnt even worth the novelty everyone said it would be. "So bad its good" not even that. Just save your money and hop in a cab lol. So tacky. Then again...theres not THAT much to do in Shanghai so ...why not?

Well, I was expecting AT LEAST a level of 50 RMB!.. but it was not even close to 6 RMB.... Absolute waste of money. BUT it saved my time from Bund to Oriental Perl Tower. The tunnel itself was weak in illumination, sometimes lights didnt even work! Just dark spaces. And it lasted 4 or 5 minutes only! Not recommend... More

Read in my guidebook this was a must do, I would definitely disagree. Essentially, it is just a tunnel that takes you from one side of the Bund(river area) to the other, via a cable car type capsule with some laser lights during the 5 min ride. From an engineering point of view, yes it is definitely an amazing feat... More

Why is this called a sightseeing tunnel? You don't see any sights, just some dayglow paintings on the walls. The best thing about this attraction is that it was pouring with rain outside so I got to be dry for the 5 minutes or so that it lasts for.

What a fascinating way to cross the river! We travelled on this thinking it was just an underground train to cross to the other side of the river...but it's so much more! The small carriages take you on a mystical light show through the tunnel. Certainly a unique experience highly recommended!

People have different views on third or fourth rate light shows. I like tacky entertainment at times myself. However, it was the service which really distinguished this attraction. The young lady who sold me my ticket may have been a graduate cum laude of the Tell Someone Who Cares School of Customer Service. The fellow on security never bothered glancing... More

After paying 40CNY, I expected an exciting journey but was presented with an average light show in a glass cabin that sent me from one side of the river to the other. It would be better if you think of it more as a transportation rather than an attraction in itself. You can take the ride from near the Oriental... More

Nothing in the tunnel. Its just a tunnel which is you have to pass in a Compartment. There is just lighing & sound effect inside. you will not feel that there is a river flowing over it.

Ok well you have to do it because everyone will expect you too and you don't want to die wondering. After you gave done it you will wonder why it cost the amount it did and you will be on the other side of the river.

Strange and pretty surreal but definitely not worth the money! It's essentially just an underground carriage, with flashing lights/some voice overs that takes you from the Bund to Pudong. It was midly enjoyable and a quick way to cross the river but I begrudged paying the extremely high price tag for what's only a few minutes of amusement. If you... More
