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.

It is just nothing. Completely stupid. The lights are weak, and the effects barely visible. The tour guide said it would be an epic voyage, well it turned out to be just excpencive and stupid

Save your money on this sightseeing attraction. The trip is very short and uneventful. You go through a tunnel with dancing lights and that is all. Unless you want a really fast and expensive trip to the other side of the river or else skip this.

My kids saw this in the Guinness Book of World Records and wanted to go round trip. I was more amused by their enjoyment sitting in the front than by the attraction itself.

Expensive, nothing out of ordinary ride filled with not so great light show, a perfect waste of money and time. My husband and I purchased a round trip ticket, but we ended up taking a taxi back.

A nice little trip in Shanghai is the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel to the Pudong side of the city. The tunnel is a ride trough a tube of light which is changing all the time. After the ride walk along the river bank, nice photo stops, have a drink on one of the terraces and watch the ships go by. A... More

Really pathetic and overpriced. The only worse thing are the shows that are associated to it. Do not waste your time or money on this. Take metro or a taxi if you want to go across it is cheaper, more convenient, and more interesting.

I can't believe people tourist guides that this seriously. It is basically an expensive ride through a tunnel with different light effects like 'heaven and hell' and 'meteor shower'. So amateurish and low budget that it is laughable if it wasn't so pricey. Seriously, the only people who would enjoy this are little kids and people on serious recreational drugs!

One extra point only due to the experience of absurdity. Like a ghost-tunnel in a remote, cheap and very half-hearted amusement park - but with a light-show! It certainly gets you across the river. Not crowded, but evidently a lot more expensive than taking the metro. One-way ticket is recommended!

70 Yuan wasted on this tour.. It was a really underwhelming experience, as the light show is very amateuristic. Only positieve Point is that you get to the other side of the river to have a beautiful view on the Bund area.

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
