Shanghai light show

Take the ferry to see the light show spectacular. One of the better light shows. The promenade is a great place for a stroll to soak up the atmosphere even on a wet day!

The bank on the Bund is fully pedestrianised for strolling along whilst taking in the scenery. The Pudong side also has a slightly shorter pedestrianised promenade for looking back to the Bund - both are worth doing, especially at night when the whole place lights up. It is easy to access the Pudong side using Shanghai's excellent metro system. Food... More

We took a one-hour cruise and it was a great way to get a feel for the city, both sides of the river, old and new. I would definitely recommend a cruise. The top deck of the ship was perfect for taking pictures of the incredible skyline.

If you are in Shanghai you have to come here for this view. This is iconic with Shanghai. Just a short visit here is all that is needed. Take plenty of pictures!!

I was on a trip to China with a tour group. This was part of the tour and such an amazing thing to do. You have to see the skyline of Shanghai at night. Initially it was foggy but then it cleared and the views were amazing. I was in awe.

Can you think about that many years ago this was the harbour of Shanghai and ships were loaded and unloaded. No containers, no forktrucks. Only men walking via a small gangway on and off the ships.

Huangpu river bifurcates the city into two parts. on one side is the bund and on the other side is the financial district. We took a ferry from bund to the other side of the river. Amazing experience
