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.

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.

This tour was unfortunately affected by the national public holiday, which meant we missed our first boat and had to wait 40 minutes for the next. This tour was still a highlight of our Shanghai visit.

The boat was large and comfortable. We would recommend getting to the top or back of the boat for the best experience as the other areas are internal. The cruise is of adequate length and the view is amazing! Make sure your camera has a good night mode. I think this is the best way to see the bund and Huangpu River. It really set the tone of our visit! Love Shanghai!!

Tom was a great guide that kept us all together and told us about Shanghai on our way to the boat dock. For those traveling on business that have an evening free, this is a great little trip to see the Bund and Pudong area of Shanghai by boat.

very nice trip, the view of the skyline was amazing. The boat was really crowded, we had to wait on the ferry terminal one hour and when we were able to get on the boat, all seats were taken so we had to be outside which turned out great because we took the best pictures. Our guide was very serious he needs to smile more frequently but he gave us a detailed information of the buildings around us.
I'd recommend this tour
