This is one of the best promenades in the world. On one side, the Shanghai Bund, dating from the 1920s perfectly restored and busy. On the other side the Huangpu River looking across to the spectacular Pudong skyline that has come to symbolize the 21st Century city just as the Bund symbolized the early 20th Century Shanghai. The Bund is... More

Best spot in town. Great place for pictures. You should go there twice during your stay in Shanghai: once during day light and another time in the evening. It looks like different places.

Very scenic walkway with manicured lawns , flowers and several cafes and restaurants and of course the impressive skyline behind you while looking across the river to the bund area.Not as busy as the bund but did provide us an opportunity to access western food at the TGIF...hooterss was across the street.

We stayed at the Pudong Shangri- La hotel. It's about 2 minutes the the promenade. It's a potpourri of small shops, restaurants and other tourist sights along the Pudong side of the river. The scenes are reminiscent of New York, London, Paris but the background is all new. It's a very pleasant stroll along the water.

Beautiful views, great walkr/run and a nice way to relax and spend a few hours, regardless of what brought you to Shanghai. Make sure to bring your camera, a tripod and a wide angle lense or at least your smart phone with a panoramic feature to take pics

Really enjoyable to visit despite being a very popular area. Just below the promenade are areas of what can only be described as walled garden...very cleverly horizontally position plants and shrubs, placed in a kind of framework making it look as if they are growing in a horizontal wall configuration...looks fantastic! The promenade itself is very long and wide with... More

I was there back on 2008. i saw recent pics and I concur that it hasn't changed a lot. We were there just to take pictures and our tour guide was in a hurry. I'm not into modern buildings though but I love the other side to where I'm standing where the Empress building is located. The road leading to... More

This place is very well-planned. It's beautiful, clean, green, aesthetic and most of all very peaceful, even when it is crowded. If the weather is good, one can have some long walks by the river, in the heart of the business district. And also enjoy some lovely meals in the restaurants here.
