- This well-maintained camel-back truss bridge spans the Suzhou Creek, where it joins the Huangpu River at the northern end of the Bund promenade. Noted for being China's first all-steel bridge, it opened in 1908. I first saw the bridge when I stopped at the Monument to the People's Heroes on the promenade. I approached the 350-foot-long span and decided to cross on one of the pedestrian walkways. A bridge and groom strolled ahead of me, stopping midway to pose for a photographer.
A cool breeze blew across the bridge, which was much appreciated on the hot, humid October day. Views from here included Pudong skyscrapers and the Bund. Only a few vehicles crossed the creek while I was there..
Garden (also known as Waibaidu) Bridge has appeared in many films, including Seven Spielberg's "Empire of the Sun." I think it is worth a look when exploring the Bund.Written 19 October 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Lovely old style house. Worth the 20kuai entry fee. Plenty of English, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese explanations. Enter through the house, then go into a large garden with explanations for why the owner had built each piece of the structures, pavilions, etc. lovely quiet garden when I went. Loved the explanations of the buildings, and the attention to detail the owner had put into it. Very picturesque, natural, and a great look into a Chinese old style house.Written 17 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The bridge is quite beautiful especially at night.
While maybe not particularly structurally significant, this bridge like everything else in Shanghai is functional and attractive.
Unique spiral approach makes it all the more interesting.Written 4 November 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- this little water town area is far less touristy and not yet a ruined experience. it doesnt have quite the infrastructure and is not nearly as big as other water areas, but it is nice to see and the charm is the lack of people there.Written 1 August 2018
- A delightful bridge, but at the end of the day that is all it is, a bridge.
Gets very busy during peak travel times, and police use loud hailers to encourage people not to stop, which is silly as everyone wants a picture on or from the bridgeWritten 28 September 2019
- Nice view of the city. Shanghai is beautiful. The architecture of this bridge is neat. I like bridge.Written 23 November 2018
- Interesting old bridge at the north end of the Bund. Steel-truss bridge is a favorite for photo selfies and wedding pictures. The "rainbow" nickname of the bridge comes from the multi-colored lighting at night. Also known as the "Garden Bridge."Written 20 January 2018
- This bridge is not as impressive as the other bridges across the river and sadly you can no longer climb to the top. Love all the new walking, jogging and cycle lanes that go past this bridgeWritten 19 June 2019
- Actually a very beautiful historical bridge - unfortunately, the surroundings are to be improved by local government. Worthwhile to see the bridge but old buildings along the river getting less and less attractive - visit could be combined with other with sightseeing spots in Songjiang.Written 13 February 2016
- Impressive gigantic bridge. View on both sides so-so though. There is the greyness of Shanghai and the buildings are on either side are not that interesting plus the morning peak hour traffic is no jokeWritten 24 March 2016
