The best way to enjoy views of both the impressive Pudong skyline and the Bund is via a cruise along the Huangpu River, a popular activity for visitors to Shanghai. The Huangpu River Cruise leaves from Shiliupu Wharf, at the southern end of the Bund, and passes by all of Pudong's most impressive skyscrapers as well as the Bund’s best sites.
We highly recommend taking the Huangpu River Cruise at night to make the most of Shanghai's impressive lights. The cruise takes 50 or 90 minutes, depending on whether you choose the meal-included option or not, and cruises usually leave every hour during the day and every 15 minutes at night.
Ticket price: 120 RMB (no meal); 128-188 RMB (meal included)
