Huangpu River Cruise

Standing on a boat on the Huangpu River, one can have a panoramic view of the river and the scenery along it. The river is sparkling with giant ships sailing busily by; the bands are filled with sky scrapers of different styles. Local people honor the Huangpu River as Mother River, and when you view the lights (evening) and spectacle from the deck of your cruise, you will understand why.

The schedule of Huangpu River Cruise usually includes a full morning cruise (from 9am to 12:30pm) and a full afternoon cruise (from 2 to 5:30pm). Both these full cruises make a complete circuit of the Huangpu to its mouth. The Huangpu River cruise company also offers a night cruise from 7 to 9pm, splendid when the lights are on the Bund and Pudong, but this voyage does not go downriver to the Yangtze River. Cruise schedules vary depending on the season, and on weekends additional cruises are sometimes added. Join our Huangpu River cruise tour you will get a comfortable seat with a fine view on the top deck, as well as a small buffet with drinks and local snacks. The river tour boats are wide double-deckers, about 150 feet long, equipped with a kiosk selling snacks; a bar selling tea, coffee, sodas, and beer; and a buffet dining room. Upper decks are nonsmoking.

The Huangpu River Cruise is probably the best witness of the pulse and dynamism of Shanghai. The 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.

In the daytime, 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 a spectacle of lights, from the Bund and heart of colonial Shanghai, to the fantastic sights of Pudong's futuristic skyline:

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, check what you are getting and if possible, make reservations in advance, otherwise you are looking at a long line and waiting time.
