Nice promenade. Can spend time early morning or evening for a walk by the river. Can see boats go by and skyline- Architecture is worth noticing in many of the buildings around.

We did this walk on our first day. Decided to join some of the locals and donned face masks since the pollution levels were extreme that day. The buildings are of course impressive but on our day they were shrouded in a haze of polluted airm the river was just disgusting and full of trash. There were also some obvious... More

Nice day so we walked along the river along with thousands of other tourists and natives. Very agreeable. Little by little we got further and further until we decided to walk through the old French area which was a little detour and then worked our way back to Nanjing Road.

If you are one for tall modern architecture you must visit this place. You can marvel at the odd shapes and sizes of the buildings by the riverside.

Great place to see the famous Shanghai skyline...and the thick pollution that covers the city! It's also a nice romantic place to walk at night time when all the buildings are lit up.

A must do activity whilst in Shanghai is to look at the view whilst walking or jogging if you wish along this well paved walkway. Although it is busy in parts you can find a quiet spot along a couple of kilometres the pathway extends (in 2014 but extending further). Plenty of places to get refreshments along the way.

To get your bearings, this is probably the first place to visit in Shanghai. Strolling here is free and refreshing. It can get cold in winter (we've been twice in winter) but they've done a really great job renovating this boardwalk, allowing a wide avenue to accommodate the crowds (none in winter), lovely gardens and green grass and a way...
