Yellow Bank River

The Huangpu River, literally “Yellow Bank River”, is a 97km-long river in China flowing through Shanghai. It is the last significant tributary of the Yangtze before it empties into the East China Sea.
Huangpu River is the largest river in Shanghai, and Suzhou Creek is its main branch.
It is an average of 400 meters wide and 9 meters deep. Shanghai gets most of its drinking water from the Huangpu, which thus plays an important part for the metropolis. It divides the city into two regions:Pudong (east) and Puxi (west). The Bund in Shanghai is located along the river.
