Bingjiang Da Dao offers spectacular views to the right, toward the historic and architecturally fascinating Bund (assuming you're walking downriver), and to the left, across the Huangpu River to the modernistic skyline of Pudong. The Bund is, to my mind, slightly better by day, while Pudong is better by night, justifying doing the promenade either during sunset or sunrise, or... More

Looks like the world and her mum make their way down the promenade! Packed full of people but the river breeze is wonderful and as the afternoon becomes evening you slowly see the lights come on everywhere and there is really nothing like it. Costs 2RMB to take a ferry to the other side but it will also be packed... More

A walk along the river lets you understand just how much this river means to Shanghai and its growth and history.

Take a stroll and watch the maritime traffic racing up and down the river. It's amazing what go on, and at the same time you get to see what happening on your side of the river.

This is a great place to people watch, whilst having a drink or some food, and just soak up the atmosphere, it's good during the day, but better at night time. There's plenty of room as it streches for over a mile !!!

We started walking here from Jin Mao Tower and ended at the Oriental Pearl Tower. It was a very long, tiring walk but very rewarding as the buildings on the Bund were beautiful. The promenade was wide so you don't feel crowded. It was nice walking and being on this side of the River for once.

We were here by Mac 2014. We walked from World Financial Center about 10minitues, going through a small park than arrived. The place is wide. There were few tourist, they were strolling, sitting on the bench and relaxing. The Bund is just opposite the river. The river (Huang Pu Jiang) is very busy as you can saw many ferries and... More

Going to Shanghai and not seeing the Bund should be a crime! - it's an amazing promenade by day and even more so at night - one of the great (city) views of the world...... the lighting on the old Bund buildings is stunning.
