If you want to really see shanghai at night the best way to do that is on the river cruise. It saves you from walking on the very busy bund and is also a great place to meet new people. The cruise is inexpensive but the waiting lines are long.

It is within walking distance from our hotel Le Royal Meridien and the night walk is quite enjoyable. There are many shopping outlet and local eatery along the area. Please don't forget to bargain with the price before any purchase along the street.

You don't want to miss this cruise of the River's tallest buildings each one trying to best the other with an outstanding display of lights. I could not stop taking videos of each turn. It will make you feel like a child again. Its like watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Definitely a must see when you go to... More

The evening cruise down the river is mesmerizing..Standing from the open deck of the cruise launch you can see the tall buildings on both sides get illuminated with lights which changes colours giving a majestic view and making you ride through a wonderland.

Visit to Huangpu river is something you can't miss when in Shanghai....Just for the mesmerizing view.Huangpu river divides Shanghai into two parts Puxi and Pudong...both parts have beauty of their own....take local ferry as well if you got time!

So don't come too close to look at if because it's so hot and one can't see the breadth. We wanted to take a cruise but oh it was too hot!! But if one looks from a distance it is truly amazing because one can see how vast it is. Also it is alive with boats still floating on the... More

Huang Pu river is beautiful to cruise down in the evening as you get to see the awesome sight of buildings lite up like Christmas trees. Huge screens on buildings, display of lights. The tallest tower touching the clouds, it's a beautiful and worthwhile cruise.
