Huangpu River Cruise and Bund City Lights Evening Tour of Shanghai

Depart from your Shanghai hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and venture to the glittering district of The Bund under the ambient cover of evening. Begin by boarding a boat and setting sail on the Huangpu River, a body of water that divides The Bund into two sections. Gaze east and west as you view glittering lights and illuminated sights from your impressive vantage point on deck. 

Disembark the boat and commence a relaxed stroll around The Bund’s beautiful waterfront; visit the renowned Peace Hotel, an establishment that served as the center of Shanghai nightlife in the 1920s, then hop into a trolley to take a tour that culminates in spectacular views of Nanjing Road. 

Relax during the journey back to your Shanghai hotel where your enriching exploration of The Bund concludes.

Tom did a great job of getting us around to see all the sights we wanted to see at night. He was very good at giving us information and answering our questions. Thanks for providing us this tour as it was one of the highlights of our trip to China.

Breathtaking views of Shanghai illuminated at night.
Good narrative by our guide.
