The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel goes under the Huangpu River connecting the Bund and Pudong Area of Shanghai.

The passengers board completely transparent slow-moving driverless maglev carriages that allow them to enjoy 360 degrees views of the surroundings. The six channel surround system amplifies the experience and the sound effects change as the scenery changes.
