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.

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...More

This was an entertaining way to cross from west to east. Lasting a few minutes the carriages move relatively slowly allowing for a total appreciation of the spectacular special effects. We had fine views through the all-round panoramic windows. The light patterns projected onto the...More

As others have said, this is one way of going across the other side. Cheap lights and commentary in Chinese but nothing much. You won't miss much if you gave this a miss. That being said if you have little kids with you they will...More

If you need to cross the river (and you should!) you may as well use the sightseeing tunnel as it's not expensive. Having said that it's not a big deal although the small capsules you travel in are cute!

It is a joke!? You go in, cheap electronic sound and check fluffy led light everywhere. It was tasteless and nothing interesting or relevant to the sightseeing of anything at all. Better off just a tunnel walk from east to west

We had this as part of our hop on/off bus ticket, it would cost 50 Yuen, it is just an electronic car that takes you to the other side of the river with flashing lights. Get the ferry!

Don't waste your money on it. The crossing takes only a few minutes and all the lights and center of the earth thing are very poor. Not worth it.

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
