Overview

An evening cruise on the Huangpu River, mother river of Shanghai, is one of the best ways to see the sparkling lights of this vibrant city.

The Huangpu River divides the Bund, Shanghai’s famous waterfront, into two parts: Puxi (downtown area) and Pudong (new economic development zone). This relaxing night cruise on the river is one of the best ways to see both old and new Shanghai. Sailing down the river towards the East China Sea, you can enjoy the views of the full sweep of the Bund and the 21st century cityscape of Pudong.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the pier in an air-conditioned coach or mini van. From here, board your boat and set out for an evening cruise on the Huangpu River. An English-speaking tour guide will accompany you on this tour.
