As it only 10 Meters from our hotel, finally we spotted this transportation accidentally. It only took 2 Yuan / ticket from Waitan to cross the lake. You just need to walk 15 Mins after that to Shanghai Pearl Tower. Very convinience transportation

This ferry gets you across the water quickly and provides wonderful views of the Bund and the Putong skyscrapers, day and night. Just make sure to buy a token for 2RMB(!!!) at the correct office NOT the cruise booth, as I almost did!

Worth to see! Nice and cheap. You Wil see all skyscrapers from the different sides and will see a bridge with a nice view close to the exit of a ferry. 2 rmb only. Get to the 2nd floor of the ferry fast)

The ferry runs a regular service between Pudong and the Bund. It only costs 2 yuan and is a great way to see both sides of the river. I particularly recommend a trip at night when all the buildings are illuminated.

The best way to cross the river and see so much of both banks :-). Cheap and cheerful but a good way to travel.

Very popular activity as the night views are spectacular. Plenty of standing room on the top deck to take photographs , It was a highlight of our Wendy Wu tour

For 2 yuan you get a great tour of the harbor. Do it at dusk for a priceless light show of Shanghai. You don't need a tour, just pay for the ferry ! 2 yuan each way per person!! Wow best price and best sights!!!

You can ride across the river and see the Bund from the water for RMB2 each way. Or walk into Lujiazui area and take metro somewhere else. A bargain!

It is a real fun experience plus an amazing view and it's basically free. Would recommend going at night. You will probably want to go there and back as there is not much on the Pudong side unless you want to walk a bit. If...More

You can take the Shanghai offical ferry service to pass the river for 2 RMB! The office is located at the bund nearby to the more expensive river cruise companies.
