Besides the tourist ferries and cruises, ferries are also used as a simple mode of transportation in Shanghai.
Taking a ferry across the river fits in nicely with a walking tour of Shanghai. Two river-crossing ferries depart and arrive from Dongchang Lu (东昌路) in Pudong, which is only a 15 minute walk away from the Pearl Tower.
Dongmen Lu (东门路) - Near the Chinese old city, a 15 minute walk from Yu Gardens.
Jinling Dong Lu (金陵东路) - Near The Bund.
