Paid RMB 98 each at the TIC at Jiefangbei. The shuttle bus was from their office at Wangfujing shopping complex; it took us to Chaotianmen. There are 9 docks there, and ours was at dock 2, second furthest in, so it was quite a long...More

Unless you're a cruise ship passenger or interested in a sightseeing river cruise, I would recommend avoiding altogether.
