One of the best places to take a lot of pictures, specially at night with the colors of the skyline and the great views of Pudong

Did a day time trip, and an evening cruise. The evening cruise was very romantic. Beautifully lit buildings, with different architecture, a modern China, worth a visit. After tthe cruise we went to Nanjing Road, did a tram ride.

I never get sick of the view along this magnificent river... sometimes it's 'blurred' by pollution but it's still a wonderful experience to meander along the riverbank ..... and when the view is crystal clear it's pure magic at night time, and gives off a really festive feel with locals thronging to have wedding pics taken and just glory in...

The River cruise is a must-do for any visitor to Shanghai! Spectacular at night when all the buildings on the Bund side and the Pudong side are lit up. Very nice experience although it was very cold when we visited in March so wrap up! Nice modern, clean boat although very busy.

After reading all the glowing reviews, I feel short-changed by our guide who booked an afternoon cruise for my family. It was a bit chilly outside the ferry and on the Bund but inside it was HOT! They didn't switch on the aircon and the English voice-over was uninspired and cut short for some reason. How I wish we had... More

The river cruise at night is not to be missed as the skyline with the lights is spectacular, and is starting to rival Hong Kong. When entering the cruise terminal, it is at first a bit daunting with the number of people and lineups, but I have to say pretty well organized (organized chaos) and things moved well but watch...

When visiting Shanghai one of the must do attractions is to cruise on the Huangpu river at night to witness the Bund lit up (visually spectacular). Be aware that this is much a tourist for the Chinese as for foreign visitors but whereas western visitors are used to queuing in an orderly fashion the Chinese are not. When it comes... More

Beautiful during the day, even more so with the buildings lit at night. Several cruises to choose from go up and down the river. We did one as part of an afternoon tour which included a buffet diner on the boat before it departed to see the light show. The food was basic and nothing like a western buffet, all... More
