Huangpu River Cruise

Cruise the Huangpu River on a holiday to China

Travel Safe with our COVID Safe Protocols

Shanghai is a city of two halves, separated by the majestic Huangpu River, a mighty tributary of the Yangtze River which carves through the centre of this great metropolis, draining into the East China Sea. The River's importance to the city is so great that the west part of the city is called 'Puxi', meaning 'west of the Huangpu River'; and the east part of the city is called 'Pudong', meaning 'east of the Huangpu River'.

No place in Shanghai can you see the contrasts of the city,than on the banks of the Huangpu River. Lying on the Puxi banks is the Bund, a vision of Shanghai's colonial past, lined with 1920s architecture not dissimilar to legation and embassy buildings in London or Paris. On the Pudong side, we catch a glimpse of the China of the future, towering neon skyscrapers reaching for the sky; this is a financial centre steering the booming economy forward.

There is no better way to see this juxtaposition of eras than by taking a cruise on the Huangpu River. At night, the dazzling colours and lights from Pudong shine bright onto the elegance of the Bund and pass under two of Shanghai's majestic bridges, Nanpu and Yangpu. Calmly cruising down this river is almost like attending a history lesson on this fantastic city; with every bend of the river coming a new sight, a new glimpse into Shanghai's ever bigger future.

Seeing the Wonders of China… finally!

Hi Wendy and fellow travellers, I waited a long time to get to China. I had wanted to go there since 1988, when we had Expo 88 here in Brisbane. I went to the China Pavilion and was enthralled by the pointy mountains which were pictured on the walls. I have travelled quite a lot […]
