If you will recall from my first blog about the river boat cruises along the Huangpu River in Shanghai, the Bund is an amazing area to see.  Not only are there several gorgeous buildings to see, but the boats on the river are interesting as well.

The boat we used was a large, clean and new; so it was wonderful.  There were a few similar boats cruising the river, but they were not as large as the one we occupied.


Frequently a police boat would speed up and come fairly close to the back of our boat, but then it would leave us and go view another of the large cruise boats.  If any boat had a problem, I am confident that there were several boats that could respond quickly and render aid.

There was also a boat on the river resembling a steam boat, like once was commonly seen on the Mississippi River.  We did not get close enough to tell if it truly was a steam boat, but it certainly did look like one!



As you can see from the picture above, there was also a boat that resembled a sail boat.  With the light along the features of the boat, it certainly stood out against the water and city!  If you have a chance, I highly recommend taking a river cruise along the Bund in Shanghai China!
