This cruise was such a great experience. The views are amazing! This is a great opportunity to take some really cool pictures and see Shanghai at night. You will be provided with complimentary snacks and drinks. I totally recommend this river cruise!

If you are in Shanghai, you cannot miss a night view along the Bund. You will enjoy a wonderful view on fantastic skyscrapers with great lights and a magical atmosphere

Did a night cruise from the terminal at the south end of the Bund. Attractive view and plenty of opportunities to take great pictures of both sides. Definitely recommend it.

The tour on the Huangpu was well done as was the light show. What really impressed me is that the building shut off their lights once the tour was over. I assume to save energy. So ahead of us here in Canada and the USA.

It costs only 2yuan to board the ferry to get across the river from the Bund to Pudong New Area. It is ordinary ferry transport and not tourist ferry. The tourist ferry costs 150yuan for an hour.

Pudong Shangri La (3 Replies)
Dear All We are planning our holiday to China for next year, spending 6 nights in Beijing and 6 nights in Shanghai. We have made our selection on hotel in Beijing (we will be staying at the Peninsula). However, we are not entirely sure about Shanghai. Currently we are considering the Pudong Shangri-La which we understand is near the Huangpu river anbd about 15 minutes from the central sights and shopping. Anyway booking there in August seems to be a problem. Can anyone recommend...More

Are there several Huangpu river cruise complanies? I am interested in an hour or so to see the skyline during the day and again at night. What do you recommend? Thanks. Marlyne

yes, there are a lot of Huangpu river cruise complanies. I recommend one the booking office of which is near the statue of Cheng Yi ( it's oppsite to Peace Hotel), if you buy the ticket, they will let you wait a min, and a van will take all of you to the port.

Shanghai World Expo 2010 peak tickets almost sold out. (5 Replies)
Forget visiting World Expo 2010 on May 1-3, Oct. 1-7 and Oct. 25-31. Virtually all tickets are sold out, and those few dates still available can be bought only at four locations in person in Shanghai. These tickets have been on sale for almost a year, so there was no shortage to begin with. Not taking my own advice, naturally, I put off buying May 3 tickets, and now all the weekend tickets are gone. Guess I see it on May 4 and 5.

I did read on 'China Daily' website that other pavilions will be making available pre-allocated tickets to visitors .. like the China pavilion will have, I suspect it will be necessary, as past Expos with 20m visitors have had long queues, if 600,000 people want to visit USA or UK on one day it will be impossible for them all to do so. also read somewhere USA pavilion has a 8 minute '4 dimension' film .... will leave it to readers imagination what the 4th dimension will be!!
