The night show where you sail down on a boat and they light up all the buildings which overlook the river is just amazing. Breathtaking. The cost of all that electricity must be astronomical but it's something you'll never forget once you've seen it.

One of the best skylines in the world. Take a stroll along The Bund. Daytime is impressive, but after sunset the view is stunning.

Cannot give a good rating to this though obviously stunning. The pollution in the water is also obvious. Just to imagine the day that these waters we clear is exciting, and I would happily rate 5/5 more if I could

Great way to get a good overview of shanghai. Well worth the trip. We organised our tickets through our hotel, but really there was no need. If you are visiting, this is a must do!

No one should visit Shanghai and not go to the Huangpu River to capture the sights of the place, and take photos. Sadly, China's air quality makes it hazardous to stay out too long, lest you be breathing in tons of polluted smoke. That being...More

Schedule this cruise for night when the buildings are lit up. One hour cruise. Incredible views of modern buildings.

Best way to see all the spectacular sights at night without getting too cold. Both sides offer great view. You can enjoy it open air or inside where there is heater. beverages are also offered during the cruise.
