Shanghai - Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel (外滩观光隧道) is a fast (and overpriced) connection between the Bund on the Puxi side and the Oriental Pearl Tower on the Pudong side.


Flashing multicolored lights and some "House Music" make the trip quite a multimedia experience, though some also have compared it to a 1970s disco...

(Except for taking pictures it's not worth the trip)


RMB 50¥ for a round trip. The entire trip does take about 5 minutes through the 646.7 meter long tunnel - not counting waiting time at the departure station. Pudong side the entrance is hard to find.
