Our Huangpu River Cruise

A Huangpu River Cruise is probably the best place to witness the pulse and dynamism of Shanghai. The Huangpu river extends for 110 km (68 miles) from its source in Dianshan Lake to its intersection with the Yangtze River about 17 miles downstream from the city.

During the day, you can see the activity bustling from the docks.

Nearly a third of China's trade enters through here. There is lots of riverfront activity at this permanent rush hour water traffic venue. Freighters cruise along barges, junks and sampans.

At night, the boat takes you on an spectacle of lights...

Cruises depart from the Bund and last one hour. There is also a longer three-and-a-half hour trip all the way to the junction of the Yangtze River.

There are many offerings for cruises, I highly recommend making reservations in advance, otherwise you are looking at a long line and waiting time which wasn't much fun in the high heat and hummidity in the summer, this certainly wasn't one of our most memorable moments!

Check out our Shanghai Map for Shanghai Attractions locations and areas of interest.

Here are some very popular tours that make all the arrangements for the cruise, provide transport to/from your hotel and you can choose from several options that include some city highlights as well as the HuangPu River cruise.
