Tel:400 880 9118


Huangpu River, a symbol of Shanghai, originates in Dianshan Lake and empties into the Yangtze River at Wusongkou (mouth of Wusong River), which divides Shanghai into its eastern and western parts. The river has been a silent eyewitness to Shanghai's history and its development.

Cruising on the Huangpu River is a must for visitors to Shanghai. Cruise ships vary in size, decoration and amenities and depart from the Bund (Zhongshan Road E1), cruise to Lupu Bridge in the south, turn and head north towards Wusongkou, and return to the Bund. You can enjoy spectacular scenery along the cruise.

Another sight is that of the two suspension bridges, Nanpu Bridge and Yangpu Bridge that appear to arch over the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, resembling “Two dragons playing with a ball.”

The west bank (Puxi) of the Huangpu River is the cultural, residential and entertainment center of Shanghai and contains the Bund, a Monument to the People's Heroes, Waibaidu Bridge and the oldest park in Shanghai, Huangpu Park, alongside many historical buildings.

The east bank of the river (Pudong) is the newer district of Shanghai. It is the city’s financial and commercial hub where you can find the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jin Mao Tower, skyscraper hotels, offices and malls, all fitted into the Lujiazui Financial Center.
