A pedestrian-only tunnel crossing the Bund, this fun and unique form of public transportation is a pricey but quick way to get across the river on foot. The experience is a bit reminiscent of a Disney Tomorrowland attraction.

A1 certified tourist trap. Save your money and stay away. I've had more fun watching grass grow. You have been warned!

Given the vast technology and electronics manufacturing that China has at its disposal I was expecting a pretty special underground light show from Bund Sightseeing tour tunnel. It is a truly bizarre sight and sound experience where clearly all the budget went on making the...More

For about 15$ Canadian dollars each (return)the Bund tunnel was a fun light show and very efficient way to travel from our hotel the Pudong Shangri La to the other side of the Huangpu River. Under a 10 minute walk from hotel and on the...More

Glitzy without substance and sort of a waste of time....except that if you're looking for an easy way across the river. The crossing of the tunnel in an enclosed rail car provides a quiet, cool place to get off your feet after a day of...More

I should have looked at the tripadvisor reviews before wasting 100 Yuan on 2 x 1 way tickets. There are far better ways to spend your money in Shanghai

We took the tunnel to cross to pudong early one morning... The only nice thing about it is that we crossed quickly without having to wait. All it is, really, is a tunnel with some LED lights (many of which don’t work anymore) and vocal...More

I'm rating the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel with three stars. Similar to other reviews here, this isn't something spectacular that you need to do while visiting Shanghai. I went without any expectations or having done any research (I simply saw a tunnel that would get me...More

Got sold a ticket for this with my sightseeing bus ticket without realising. Incorrectly called sightseeing tunnel when there is no sights to see.

If you just need to get across the the river, this is quirky and easy. The lights and effects are dated. The tram is rickety. Something out of a Bond villian's lair actually. You can cross the river for 2 yuan on a Ferry boat....More

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
