Huangpu River Night Cruise Shanghai

In Shanghai, China, the Huangpu River Night Cruise is a must-see. The cruise takes you on a tour of the river and its many sights. You will see the city skyline, the Bund, and much more. The cruise is a great way to see the city at night and is a great way to relax after a long day.

The Bund at Night

The Huangpu, formerly romanized as Whangpoo, is an artificial 113-kilometer-long (70 mi) river flowing north through Shanghai that was first excavated and created by Lord Chunshen, one of the Four Lords of the Warring States. It is the last significant tributary of the Yangtze before the Yangtze empties into the East China Sea. The Bund and Lujiazui are located along the Huangpu River.

The Huangpu is the largest river in central Shanghai, with the Suzhou Creek being its major tributary. It is on average 400 meters (1,312 ft) wide and 9 meters (30 ft) deep, and divides the city into two regions: Puxi (“west of Huangpu”), the traditional city center, and Pudong (“east of Huangpu”).
