The Bund is a great place to go and walk and enjoy the view at night. The skyline is lit up and it is pretty cool. It is also a fun place to wonder around during the day to check out the sites and shopping.

These buildings are beautiful and a great example of architectural preservation, mostly from the 1920's onward they are bulked together so you see them at one time to compare the different beauty. You get a very good view from the promenade and fantastic angles for some awesome photos. I highly recommend it.

We deliberately stayed at a hotel nearby the Bund so we could walk and appreciate it more fully. We found something marked on a map indicating an Architecture Museum which we hunted for, nobody knew what we were speaking of when asked for whereabouts, till one guy pointed across the road and we went off in that direction only to...

Let's take a walk at night to the Bund in Shanghai, maybe for pictures a slightly wet day is perfect, when the roads are mirroring the car lights and street lamps. walk there, take photographs, and later go to one of the bars or restaurants in one of the famous, over hundred years old buildings...

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
