Shanghai Night Life

Shanghai is famous for its vibrant nightlight scene. The contrast between the glamorous colonial buildings and the dazzling skyscrapers is absolutely amazing at night. Looking across the Huangpu River at night you can see the beautiful Oriental Pearl Tower and Jinmao Tower. The best way to experience the night scenery is taking the Huangpu River Cruise.

There are some of the best high class bars and lounges for those who want to chill and relax. Some of the best bars are located at Xintiandi, where a wide range of fine restaurants offer cuisines from different countries.

The Huangpu River night cruise presents a wonderful opportunity to appreciate the night life on the Bund. There are many boats carrying tourists, including deluxe boats, ancient dragon boats of Ming and Qing styles, boats of Shikumen style of old Shanghai, Pirate Boat, etc. No matter which kind of boat you take, the unique night view of Shanghai will surely live on in your memory for years to come.

Being a city that never sleeps, Shanghai’s liveliness goes well beyond daytime activity. Enjoying the reputation of Oriental Pearl, Shanghai is a city full of bars and pubs. Indulge yourself in live music and drinks at one of the city’s clubs and bars to cap off your night.
