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.

We had taken the ferry over to the financial centre but walked little further on the return journey to experience this attraction. It was very expensive, when compared to the price of the ferry, but we expected it to be an interesting experience. We were wrong. We got into a pod and were taken through a tunnel that had lights...

Not worth the time or money! This attraction is difficult to locate, and a great waste of money. It is over-advertised, and of poor quality.

Read description of this as kitsch and would agree. Pretty much what I expected going on a light rail car in a tunnel with light displays. Wasn't as long as I thought it was going to be at around 2-3 minutes to get along the tunnel. Y50pp one way, 70 return. Or return on metro for cheaper. Worth doing once,... More

For sure the most stupid way of going from the Bund to Pudong (or v.v.), but hey, that's the whole thing! Take a ride, and you will laugh for a day and have a memory for a life time!

Temper your expectations: this silly form of transportation from Pudong to the Bund under the river is kitschy, but as long as you understand that, you will enjoy it. It's a short ride of a couple minutes accompanied by outdated lighting effects and techno music. You travel in little robotic pods that hold about 8 people.

We received a voucher for a one-way trip through this tunnel (The Bund -> Pudong). Quite frankly, otherwise I would never have paid the 25 YMB and indeed - a bit of touristy light-spiel and that's it. Not very amazing, rather boring. Shows the impressing of clear blue waters and fish when you go down - well the river itself... More

If you have children and want a fun way of crossing over to Pudong from the bund then this is worth a visit. It's expensive in my mind at 50RMB per way. Children will like the travel in the glass pods and the various dated lighting effects along the way.

Didn't visit any of the other attractions as they seemed better geared towards children, but did use it to cross the river, at 50Y quite expensive. The little trains are like underground cable cars and there is a rather tacky light show as you go through, takes about 5 minutes.

I went into this having no idea what it would actually entail, but knowing not to get my hopes up too high thanks to the reviews on here. My husband, on the other hand, was sooooo confused at what was happening. Basically this is a way to get to the other side of the river via a glorified old subway... More

If I recall right, this was about 50 RMB one way. While that is a lot more expensive than a ferry ride or subway ride, it's not exactly a lot of money. I went because I like traditional dark rides and thought this was a fun concept. The light effects are by no means state of the art or eye-popping,... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood 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.
