For me its simply worth to try. It is quite expensive, however it is understandable since its a tourist spot. Cost you 50 HKD for single trip and 75HKD for return. They serve the imaginagion of the passanger like you are getting through a tunnel to the future, supported with lights and backsound music. It is an experience. Though if... More

This "experience" is nothing to write home about it might be nice for little kids for a ride but it was really nothing more than a tunnel with some random lights flashing. Way to expensive for just getting to the other side.

This looked very cool and for the price of admission, it looked like a bargain until… It wasn’t very exciting, long and it is just a tourist trap. Yes, the lights were cool but certainly didn’t qualify for the price. Just take the subway.

I have seen tried many tourist attractions around the world, but i think this takes the prize as the worst attraction i have been on, especially given the relatively high price you have to pay for the ticket. It is anything but sightseeing, instead you get some neon lights, music, and suddenly its over.

Such a waste on money. There is a reason why there is hardly anyone taking the tram. It goes through a tunnel where you see a lightshow as the tram passes. And before you know it, it is over. You are better off taking the ferry or subway instead. We were silly enough to buy a 2 way ticket, thinking... More

You hop in an underground cart and they make it seem like it will be the best ride of any carnaval, the ride starts and you go through a dark tunnel filled with lights and sounds that reminded me of the 80's version of "charly and the chocolate factory". Only no Umpa Lumpa's, no candy, and no fun. The idea... More

If you're in Pudong and wanting to cross the river, we found the entrance hard to find. We kept asking people and they were like "what tunnel?" Of course the language barrier came into play. By the time we found it, we could have walked to the subway station but I had read the reviews about how bad this was... More

My teenage daughters and I needed to go to the other side of the river, so we thought this Bund Sightseeing Tunnel will serve the both purposes: transportation and sightseeing. It costs about $7 one way and $9 round way per ticket. We took the round way. But we were so disappointed the light show, it was 3 minutes and... More

I've used it as it was over recommended by locals, in fact it's over priced for just a passageway to the other side!! You would use the subway much much cheaper. The tunnel is just fake and the lighting is just a kids one!! Very disappointed about it, i don't recommend using it.

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighbourhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
