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.

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.

This is an easy way to cross the river. It takes about 5 min and the return ticket is 70 Yuan. Don't expect to much. It's more like a lightshow from the 80's or 90's. Nevertheless I think, that anyone visiting Shanghai should have seen this...;-) Andreas

There is nothing to see on the ride. You move through a tunnel that is supposedly under the river. You get a view of the tunnel with some flashing lights. You wait to see what is special and you are at the end of the tunnel. It takes less than 5 minutes.

I can only think of two reasons to take this ride: 1. It will take you across the river. 2. you can buy a combo ticket for SWFC building, Pearl Tower and avoid the queues at those places. Actually the second reason saved us a lot of time, as there was almost no queue for the ride, but at SWFC... More

Seriously, don't go. The only good thing is that it links The Bund to DongPu. Otherwise, don't believe the hype. Take the metro, bus, taxi or boat.

This is a trip in every sense of the word, think Willy Wonkas psychedelic boat ride down the chocolate river, but with Gene Wilder replaced by an ethereal voice who frequently and unexpectedly bellows things like "MAGMA!" and "METEOR SHOWER!" at you for no apparent reason... truly bizarre. The lights are fit-inducing so epileptics beware, I don't remember a single... More

Its expensive, and it's odd. There are some strange throwbacks to Soviet-era propaganda films in the odd voice-over that plays while the train passes through the tunnel, if you're in to that kind of thing. Would love to know what the locals make of it...except I doubt that they would go on this as it's designed for tourists? Is it?

Before realising that this is one of the biggest tour rips in the world. The ghost train ride at the local show is much better. Guess they have to charge this sort of money due to the small amount of uneducated tourists that do pay. Let's Shanghai down 👇👇👇👎👎👎
