One of the vibrant parts of the larger Yangstse River, the Huanpu River flows all the way through the city of Shanghai in China, and it affords the opportunity for a delightful cruise whilst you take in the various sights that dot the riverbank on both sides. Nestled in the heart of the city, you will discover a selection of luxury service apartments Shanghai has to offer its visiting droves, with the Citadines Biyun Shanghai presenting the ideal, centrally located service apartment Shanghai has to offer all its corporate and leisure visitors.
Take a cruise on the Huangpu River to add value to your vacation or business visit. Most start from the Bund and commence upstream. During the tides coming in, you can witness the merging of three separate rivers and water colours: the blue of the East China Sea, melting into the blue grey of the Huangpu, which in turn both combine with the yellowed waters of the Yangtze. Make sure you bring your camera on this excursion, as you will want to capture the stunning portrait of the city line lingering on the riverbanks as well as some famous attractions such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the tallest tower in Asia and the third highest in the world. Note the architectural difference between the classical architecture of the west bank and the tall, gleaming skyscrapers of the east bank – where history and modernity co-exist peacefully. A cruise on the Huangpu is sure to delight those of all ages, so climb abroad!
