Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

Oriental Pearl TV TowerThe Bund Sightseeing Tunnel is no big secret, although it’s rather hellish to find when you are on the Pudong side.

We couldn’t so we went back to Puxi subway station Middle Henan Rd. and walked back to the Bund.

If you take the pedestrian tunnel close to Bund 18 (Puxi side) you’ll find at the end of it a sign, pointing to the left, to the Sightseeing Tunnel.

It must have been a rather intoxinated, ok, totally doped person that designed this small tunnel under the Pu river.

You enter a small cable car and guided by house music you are thrilled with colorful lightbeams, waving puppets and suddenly disappearing movie screens. Strange as it may sound, it is rather enjoyable and an efficient way to get to Pudong, once you have seen the view from the Puxi side.

Having arrived, two escalators bring you close to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Another touristic hotspot I will save for my next guest.

As mentioned if you are on the Pudong side the entrance is not that easy to find. I made a picture of the entrance which may help, or not.
