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.

A pricey very strange cable car (the cars are attached to a cable and pulled along) crossing of the river from the NanJing Road area of the Bund to PuDong (1 block from the TV tower). The experience could be worthwhile and informative - historical Shanghai could be portrayed from the extensive light and sound equipment installed. Instead, it is... More

The pods you ride in are fun. The queueing, the actual ride (less than 5 mins) with flashing lights (think fairy lights) is boring. Don't bother!

Expectations were low coming in, but the operators see you coming and are not shy about it. There is nothing to 'sightsee' in the Tunnel. It's like an imitation Disney ride more than anything else, with a low end light show and not much else. Yes, it does get you to the other side of the river. So does the... More

This attraction is essentially a rail tunnel where you sit in a pod and get driven along to the other side of the river. There's bright flashing lights and random references to things that I couldn't understand although I do recall a mention to hell and paradise. It's quite amateur and expensive so the subway would be a far better... More

Sure should visit when you travel to shanghai. Went to The Oriental Pearl Tower by Metro & then to Bund Sightseeing tunnel.You can buy tickets from the Ticket window near Pearl tower. Superb experience starting right from the entry downstairs till your exit. You can also do some shopping here. Should not miss a chance.

This attraction has really had its day, it is terrible! The entrances are tired and the ride itself is well past it's sell by date! Whatever the show is meant to be it isn't, it is about 5 minutes of some flashing lights and some nonsense commentary which is such a shame as it could be so much more! This... More

This short tunnel under the Hungpu river lets you cross Shanghai's main waterway from The Bund to Pudong Financial district ( or vice versa) in about 8 minutes while being treated to a kaleidoscope of flashing lights on a glass cable car. This is worth the experience although if you've done this once, its all about it. But the ease... More

For the price 50 rmb, I didnt expect much, but I expected something. Its basically a tunnel under the Hungpu River from the Bund to the Pudong area. Its a glass metro in essence and you can see flashing lights and regular neon lights with some fishes displayed on projectors, and that's about it, allot of it was bare and... More

Let's face it, this is an out and out tourist trap. Located in the centre of the Bund, it offer a trip across to the financial centre of Shanghai by means of an underground cable car. My wife has done this trip before, and she assures me it has been revamped since her first visit. Hmm. Anyway, it is a... More

we paid like RMB50 for each person and once we lined up we knew it was a waste of money.... they put up lots of pictures of beautiful underwater scene on the wall and try to get you to take a photo there because when you are in the tunnel there is NOTHING! The lights are starting to not work... More
