Huangpu River in Shanghai VS River Thames in London

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather
Last May we cruised on River Thames in London. Just like Shanghai Huangpu River cutting through Shanghai, River Thames divides London roughly into north and south parts. River Thames River enters the North Sea at the Thames Estuary while Huangpu river flows into East Sea of China.

The River Thames cruise passes some famous attractins like Houses of Parliament, Tower of London and Tower Bridge. The boats on Huangpu River in Shanghai sail pass Shanghai Bund, the skyline of sky

scrapers, Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Center, etc.The enriched history of London is unveiled in front of us cruising on River Thames. The cruise on Huangpu River in Shanghai offers a good opportunity of immersing yourself in the combined sharp contrast of the old and new, the historical Bund and fast developed Pudong area rife with high-rises.

 
No London tour is complete without an amazing cruise on River Thames. No Shanghai Tour is perfect without cruising on Huangpu River.

I realy recommend you visit River Thames and Huangpu River when visiting the two great metropolises. They have been both cultivated by great rivers like other international metropolises.
