It supplies water to the 13 million people in the metropolis and is also important for navigation, fishery, tourism and receiving wastewater. The Huangpu River is the mother river of Shanghai City, which witnesses the ups and downs of this great city. It is regarded as the symbol and epitome of Shanghai City, and a very important place to go if you pay a visit to Shanghai City.

History and culture
Huangpu River, 97 km long, rising in the lake district of Shanghai Municipality, East China, and flowing northeast past Shanghai into the Chang estuary at Wusong. The Huangpu River can also be called either the Chun Shen River or the Huang Xie River.

It is also a major water source for Shanghai, and as the city has grown it has suffered from water shortages and polluted drinking water; in 1996 a project to divert water from the Chang River (Yangtze) to the Huangpu was completed. The cruise boat meanders eastward along the golden waterway to the intriguing "three-layer waters" at the Wusong Mouth, confluence of the three and half hours over a distance of 60 kilometers, with beautiful view emerging one after another. 

Its famous riverside avenue, with its park-like green areas and tall buildings, is Shanghai's landmark. Here, the visitor stands in front of magnificent buildings in the art nouveau style that once housed the clubs, banks, companies and hotels of the foreign rulers.
