This display will tell you a bit about the area and it's nice to get a sense of all the changes that have come to Shanghai over the years. This city has a plethora of good architecture and cool buildings and seems a must-visit for any fan of city skylines.

I went there with my wife and young son. It was an ok place to see some old European style architecture. All of the shops were quite expensive, so unless you are super rich don't go there to shop.

One floor is taken up by a magnificent view of the city which is updated as new buildings go... More

This is Chicago on steroids, if you get what i mean. Lots and lots of tall buildings, with some of them very pretty - the TV tower looks pretty especially in the evenings. Apart from that, not much to see around. Lost of people and traffic..

I stumbled upon this little museum at the northern end of the bund as I walked along the bund, so I did not come all the way here specifically to look at it. This is a small museum with photographs along a circular wall, rather than a formal museum as such. It is certainly worth having a look at. Looking... More

Shows detail history of the bund with English subtitles. Takes about 30 minutes to see. Across from the former British embassy.
