Huangpu River, Shanghai

(4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Shanghai attractions like Huangpu River can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 是暑假的时候去的,好多人,太阳又大,所以觉得晚上去会比较好,而且感觉夜景会更美,下次去想坐船游夜景,一定很棒。上海好赞呀,下次还想再去呢。 
  • So good that even during the day and at night went the next day to go, the view is so pretty, another Hong Kong has another taste with the Bund side views are pretty (old Europe) on the cutting edge of the future cities of the Pudong side view, something more beautiful night,

  • 晚上去的時候感覺特別漂亮因為江邊的建築都亮起了燈光所以照耀下感覺特別漂亮喔,當然遊客很多所以需要注意
