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

As with many of the previous reviews, this is only a convenient and different way to cross the river as there are no nearby bridges. We also took this although pricey having been stung the night before by a taxi driver. A bit cheesy and not really as advertised but it gets you across conveniently to the Pudong and back... 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.

As many have said, this is terrible value for money, but I guess if you have the need to cross the river at the point where the tunnel is, then it's convenient. We needed to get from the Bund to the mall on the other side and this was quicker than a taxi, though way more expensive. The show is... More

A good first exposure to sightseeing Chinese style! A little Chinesey, but hey, when in China expect Chinese version! A great activity for family with teenagers!

i was caught by surprise when we were going through the tunnel and it was astonishing to find out that light effects could create such an effect on us that we would dislike being out of the tunnel by the end of it. darkness ...camera on....lights...imagination

If you want to cross the river it is very efficient, but at 50 RMB not the cheapest. The tunnel itself has a random light and projection display, all very odd.

Located at Wai tan, this is the only other way one can cross the river. However, it cost 50 yuan per adult one way. A return trip will cost 70 yuan. Compared to a ride of 2 yuan using the ferry, this is really expensive. This is the 2nd time that I have taken this sightseeing tunnel. However, the experience... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
