Huangpu River, Shanghai

4.3
#1 of 24 in Nature in Shanghai
One of the Yangtze's most significant tributaries, Huangpu River remains a key player in Shanghai's shipping industry, as well as a major point of interests for visiting tourists. The river splits the urban sprawl into the eastern (pudong) and western (puxi) sections as it winds its way for 113 km (70 mi) through the city before emptying into the sea. River cruises make extremely popular methods for sightseeing around town--hop aboard a tourist-oriented excursion for a look at famous city landmarks from the water. Note the differences in architecture between the west bank's European designs and the east's towering skyscrapers. Marvel at the bridges that span the waterway, or make your way to the mouth of the river to admire the blending of distinct waters as they enter the ocean.

  • This is not a superb tour boat (uncommented) but to do it anyway because there is a view d together on the 2 shores of Shanghai. It lasts an hour. A bit expensive. We have to stay on the ground floor of the boat if it still has to pay to be on the 1st floor. On the 2nd floor you can admire the landscape but little head and in the wind. The counter where we buy tickets is not easy to find, you must go down to the B1

  • Sufficient personal and there are tours available. Some ticket sales office, all in the same boat ride. Cost the same per person 120 is the original 50-minute cruise. Top-floor deck is not sitting. But amazing 360 degree views quickly and during passing time.

  • In the sun it's a nice walk alongside the Bund. You can grab a river cruise from here too. There's also a 'Tourist Tunel' which you can use to cross under the river to the Financial district and high end malls. The river is integral to Shanghai so it's a must see. It's a bit of walk but worth it for the photo ops.
  • Evening cruise is just awesome out here
  • Wonderfull
  • Great area of Shanghai and always good for a walk
