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.

We went for the one hour river cruise on the Huangpu river in the evening. With all the buildings illuminated you get to see the development that has happened in Shanghai. The cruise is definitely recommended to be part of shanghai visit.

Take the night boat tour for the best views of Shanghai and plenty of good photos. This is a must-see activity when in Shanghai for business or pleasure.

It comes from the Yangzi River and feed Shanghainese for hundred years. If you take a short time cruise along the river, you could see the modern buildings and classical western sytle architectures on both beside of you. I love it!

Actually you are on the Bund you see it . You are in Pudong in any of the high-rise observatories , SWFC , Jin Mao tower , Shanghai tower and you se it . You take a cruise up and down the river you see it . It is an unseparable part of the city and adds to it's beauty
