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.

Admission is 50 RMB and 70 RMB if you buy a round trip. But if you buy from Big Bus Tours, it is discounted to 40 RMB. The tunnel takes you from one point to the Pearl Tower area (across) and it takes about 3-5 minutes max. There are psychedelic lights that look like kaleidoscope. Other than that, there is... More

Total waste of time except as method of crossing to other side of river. Apart from a rubbish light show this was the single biggest disappointment I experienced in China

A relatively inexpensive way to get a cross the river but it's not well signposted so it is not eAsy to find

A bunch of us needed to get from the Pudong side to the Bund at Peak Hour. We were close to the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel entrance and took that chance that it would be quicker than a cab. We were staying at the Fairmont Peace Hotel and where the tunnel popped us out was very, very convenient. At 50RMB, it... More

It's a nice way to commute to the other side of the Bund Area. The tunnel is not something very interesting etc, it just some sound and light lead pod ride. The return is way cheaper and is a better way to commute. 70 RMB for a return ticket.

A very expensive light and sound show. 70 yuan return was much more than this attraction is worth. Save your money and use the Metro instead

There's no sightseeing of any kind to be seen in this tunnel. It's simply a tram that shuttles back and forth between Pudong and the Bund. I don't know how much it costs since my ticket was free with my tour package, but if it's more than $5USD it's not worth it. It's a 10 minute ride underneath the river... More

If you're staying in the Pudong, like I was, you have to get over to the Bund somehow, and this is certainly an interesting way to get there. Be warned, the entrance can be a little tricky to find. Once you're on your way, you'll experience an interesting interactive media presentation that you just have to witness to fully understand.... More

I stumbled into the Sightseeing Tunnel while looking for a pedestrian walkway from the financial district to the Bund. What I found instead shocked and delighted me. And it will to you, too. There aren't many things in Shanghai I had to do more than once, but once I saw what they turned this simple five-minute electric cart traverse of... More

I'm not sure what the point of this is - it's billed as a journey through the earth, but really, it's a way to cross a river on an underground tram with LED light displays and odd music. The one advantage over the metro is that the exit is right on the Bund, rather than having to walk from the... 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.
