The riverside walk along the Bund may be busy and crowded during the day, but with good reason - it's simply a must when in Shanghai for people-watching and getting a good feel for the city.

Of course, it lacks the fantastic view towards Pudong, but you have a good view towards the old buildings at the Bund. And there are also some... More

This has a great atmosphere for walking and taking in the views. There are many people on a nice sunny day. It's a nice place to reflect while watching boats go by.

This is definitely a must go when visiting Shanghai, especially on a nice day, to enjoy the view across the river, or just relax and have some tea/coffee in nearby coffee shops.

One of the nicest things to do in Shanghai walking around this promenade its a great activity. The landscape its simply unique and there is basically thousands of photo opportunities. In my opinion, the best time to come here its during sunset to have the chance of seeing both day and night the Shanghai Skyline....

Walking along the river, it a relaxing way to enjoy the skyline. See it at night and in the daytime for totally different views.

On the opposite of the BUND (WaiTan) at the Huangpu river you can have a relaxing walk with a nice view to the old building at Puxi.

Walking along the promenade of the river is fun- did the Shanghai mini marathon starts close to the riverside area.

It is very relaxing to walk on the river side, you can admire the skyline and all the ferries and boats on the river. If you go there in the night around 11pm there are no people at all (unbelievable but true).

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.
