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.

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.

If you don't mind paying 50y to cross under the river AND you like cutting edge 1950's effects then this attraction is for you! I'm sure you'll get a laugh out of the awful sound track that goes along with the lighting. I had to ride it just to see how bad it actually was. I've been to Shanghai many... More

One of strangest tube rides ever and had us in fits of laughter. Odd sound track, various light displays which remind you of painting efforts of primary school children. Sometimes it's worth seeing something as it is just so strange, different and incomprehensible as to why it was done. This is one such thing

Awful. Terrible. Waste of time. Waste of money. Pointless. I can't believe I queued for so long and paid so much for this totally bizarre experience. Of which there were no sights to see!

There are more convenient ways to cross the river (2 RMB ferry, 3 RMB subway vs. 50 RMB). However, it's a kind of interesting thing to see the light show (outdated, kitsch) and it's less crowded.

What a way to travel from one side of the city to the other! We need this type of thing in the UK to make our journey to and from work more enjoyable!

For 50 RMB I expected much more than train and not very attractive light show. Take metro (3 RMB) and pass the river faster, cheaper and the feeling is similar.

The survival of this tunnel appears to be linked to the limited means of traveling across the river at this point. Unless you want to walk another 20 minutes to the ferry or catch a train... which is probably another 5 minute walk and definitely worth that effort. For 50rmb you get a carriage ride surrounded by garish flashing lights... More

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.
