At night the promenade has a nice view specially with the lights of the city. The problem is that it's totally crowded and really dirty. You cannot fin a place to have dinner and there is only photos or drinks to be bought...

Nice place to walking in summer night with cool breeze. Less people comparing to Puxi, many restraurants and coffee shops to have a rest.

You take the good with the bad. Although by day and night, it's an excellent place to view the Bund from Pudong. Day and night are very crowded. And with tourists from around the globe, it's a potpourri of pick pockets. The most horribly gullibly scam is the will you take our picture... You agree, and get bumped by another.... More

Went on a hot and humid summer's Wednesday night. Slightly disappointed that it was so crowded, especially with tourist kids. Still a beautiful view and nice walk. We took the ferry over to the Puxi Bund side - a big mistake. It was impossible to catch a cab. The Puxi side is still more crowded...

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.
