City Life

There are two reasons why visitors to Shanghai should experience The Bund’s Tourist Tunnel: its convenience to cross from The Bund to Pudong and for its reputation as the most bizarre city attraction in Shanghai - possibly the world. Theme park-style cars will escort you from one side of the river to the other (underground), while a psychedelic light show of coloured illuminations, projected images and dreamy narration provide in-transit entertainment. A first-of-its-kind in China, Arabic and western visitors are always left feeling perplexed and slightly bemused, but because there are no boats or bridges across Huangpu River, the Tourist Tunnel is pretty much unavoidable. In fact, so abstract is the experience, you’ll probably find yourself making excuses to go back for more.

Health & Fitness

The Peninsula Spa by ESPA has seven treatment rooms and two VIP Suites and offers massages, reflexology and thermal areas with ice fountains, rain showers, steam rooms and a sauna.
