“Goodbye Lupu Bridge”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Unfortunately, the Lupu bridge is now closed. Went there two weeks ago and it didn't look like it was going to open anytime soon. It was up and running last spring (May 2012).

“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I've been there today and almost everything left of the Expo 2010 seems to be closed or torn down. The Lupu Bridge was closed to and didn't look like they would reopen the viewing platform soon. Not worth the trip

“climb on top of Lupu bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

take an elevator first, then climb all the way to the top and enjoy a great view. Right now, a good place to view what is left of the Expo

“Best kept secret in Shanghai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

Climbing the 350 or so steps up the gentle arch of the Lupu bridge gives a fantastic view along the river and up towards the Bund. The best thing is that there's almost never anyone there - so you can virtually have the viewing platform to yourself. Lovely.

“Nice climb for a nice day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2010

Take subway station to Luban Road, and walk underneath the highway towards the river. On the right side there is the elevator building and the ticket hall. Everywhere are minders, although what one guy on top of the viewing platform could have done if a visitor was determined to jump is another matter. Most of the minders actually are downstairs, probably trying to prevent suicidal foreigners to bash their heads against elevator doors.
The hike starts after the elevator dumps you upstairs, at street level. Then it goes up steel steps in between the steel arches. The stairs are wide, and actually you dont need to be an experienced climber in order to master this one. On top you have a wonderful 360 degree view, and you are right above both sides of the former exposition site.
Only recommended on a nice day, otherwise there is no point to climb up if you cant see down.
