“Time Tunnel - 1970's Fun Park Arcade”

“Price increase”
A pedestrian-only tunnel crossing the Bund, this fun and unique form of public transportation is a pricey but quick way to get across the river on foot. The experience is a bit reminiscent of a Disney Tomorrowland attraction.

If you ever had a chance to ride the People Mover at Disney in the 70's and 80's, this will bring back memories. If you take it from the Puxi side, you can get a ticket to the Pudong side and also purchase a ticket...More

Whilst a good way to cross the river (but costly), going down the escalators to the tunnel was like going backwards in time to the 70's when darkness and static lights were a "cool" attraction. The ride across is in a little cabin, with the...More

We opted for this attraction to cross from Pudong to the Bund because it would land us right on the promenade. 10 minute walk to the tunnel from the Pearl Tower ticket booth. Apparently prices have gone up. A basic one-way ticket across the river...More

The Sightseeing Tunnel costs 70 yuans RT, which is rather expensive for a trip under the river that lasts about 3 min. However, depending on where you want to go it may be convenient. There is a light show while you travel in a small...More

Don't come here expecting something good. It is cheesy, tacky and expensive for what it is. Do it once and never again. But it is an easy way to cross the river.

In a nutshell: There is no sightseeing; the price is ridiculously high; and the LED light show is boring. But the quick transport from one side of the Huangpu River to the other -- about 4 minutes -- kept me from giving this attraction a...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive

Help with the logistics of our itinerary (3 Replies)
We are coming to Shanghai for 5 days and I was hoping to get some help with the logistics of our itinerary. Here is a breakdown of our days…can you let me know if I have picked things relatively close to each other for on each day or if we will be spending too much time traveling all over town to each site? Am I allocating too much time to one thing or another? Also, if I am missing any key sites or if you recommend anything else please let me know!! Thanks! Day 1: Arrive in Shanghai...More

If you read the reviews at: tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g308272-d3… you will find that the entrance is near the Oriental Riverside Hotel (I would estimate about 100 feef away) and most people find it a disappointment. (Have your hotel front desk write it out in Chinese so if you get there and still cannot see it, you can ask a policeman or doorman at the hotel.) I found it to be a glitzy ride for drug-trippers from the '70s with laser-like lights and neon. The entrances are filled...More

how to get to Oriental Tower/Jian Mao Tower from LongYang (5 Replies)
Riding the maglev train to Longyang Station. From there, we'll go to the Oriental Pearl and Jin Mao Towers before crossing back to Puxi via the Bund Sightseeing tunnel. Are these towers walking distance from the Longyang Station or do we need to ride bus/taxi? Thanks.

Longyang Station is quite a long way from both towers (definately not walkable). However from Longyang Metro station (after switching from Maglev) you can catch the metro to Lujiazui Station which is very close to the Pearl Tower. We walked from the Pearl Tower to the Superbrand Mall (had dinner in a Thai restaurant with great views) and then walked up to the Jin Mao Tower and went up to the Cloud 9 bar for dessert (about 10 minute walk from memory). We didnt bother with the sightseeing...More
