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.

Dont do it

Cute wee carriages and the line goes under the river but thats where it stops. Just better to get a taxi oe bus to the venue rather than queue for this.

This is a bit of fun - the lights are a bit dated and the soundtrack is nonsense but if you have to cross the river anyway this is quick, convenient and easy and takes you from central Pudong to the heart of the Bund.

I have taken this little ride a couple of times and both times enjoyed it , I dont know what people expect, it just a little ride among lights, is not a roller coaster.

A way to get from one side of the river to the other. 50 RMB one way or 70 return. 8 person glassed in pod rail carriage accessible from the Bund across to the Pearl TV tower.

Basically, you go down a long tunnel with some flashing lights and pay a ridiculous amount to do so. Take the ferry instead for only 2.00 rmb.

I had read the TA reviews and understood that this is not worth the money, but my sister & mother were curious about it and we finally decided to try it. It's just a silly thing, some pointless images on the walls. While in there, both my mom & sister acnowledged that this was not worth it. It costs 50... More

We wnted to explore Shanghai and although I hate the open busses my family insisted to do so. It was nice and I learned some new things about Shanghai. The guide advised us to buy tickets for the Bund sightseeing tunnel when I told him we wanted to see the Pudong Area and the financial district. He told us the... More

There aren't enough words in the English language to accurately describe this bonkers little tram ride beneath the Huangpu River. Between the tourist information sign asking visitors to "not go barebacked in public" to the incoherent voiceover yelling things like "fossil variants" and "hell or paradise?" this was one of the best experiences I had in Shanghai. All the other... More

I didn't look this up on trip advisor, I simply guesstimated it would be the best way to cross the river to the action end of Pudong. So the bar I set myself was based on the entry advertising.... My experience began by descending down the escalators surrounded by aquatic wildlife pictures. At this point I wondered to myself, surely... More

I went at a perfect time- NO line, NO crowd, walked right on after paying 50 RMB. Since that's only 8 bucks, who cares. The good thing was that it got us back across the river conveniently, but other than that, a total waste of time. (That and we'll always be able to laugh about it.) The sound/music was ridiculously... 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.
