This is a tour of the river with tables inside and you can have noodles soup. Casual, I didn’t see a bar. Plenary of seating and clean. Beautiful views of the city at night. Definitely recommend and fine for kids.

Book early and ARRIVE early. Seats are not allocated and you may end up searching for a comfortable seat before launching. Otherwise highly reommended if you have not seen Shanghai by night previously.

Great experience of viewing the bund at night. It was hard to get a seat on ground floor and roof of ship was crowded (try to get ahead in waiting line before boarding the ship so you can get a seat or pleasant roof view).
