It is hard to believe of slice of colonial elegance does exist in Shanghai, despite the pushing, shoving, spitting on the streets of some of its ill-cultured citizen, Shanghai still has some class left. Go in the day to marvel at its architecture and design upclose and enter the premises to admire its beauty (most of them are banks), and... More

It is amazing the this areas still preserve all the old colonial buildings. each building got its unique and special story. Although the owner of the building may have changed from the to time but the appearance of the building remain its character. You can walk from one end to the other and please do go inside some of the... More

Unbelievably lovely classical buildings on the Bund. I spent the entire afternoon walking from one end to the other and taking photos of most of the classic buildings there. Unforgettable and impressive.

Awesome views from here, but very crowded if you go at night. Also, if you are a white tourist, expect a lot of people to ask to take photos with you here. I came with my brother and we ended up taking over 30 photos with strangers. but it was fun.

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.

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.
