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.

Nothing like a stroll along the Binjiang Avenue to make you forget how full and busy Shanghai is! Many more restaurants have popped up along the riverside lately, but it is still nowhere near as crowded as the Bund. Also, most of these restaurants have excellent alfresco seating, since there's more space to spread out on this side of the... More

My favorite time to visit this promenade is in the evening when the lights come on. It is a great people watching location any time of day, but in the evening, the light show across the river is outstanding. This is at the end of Nanjing-Lu so a great walk fro People's Square to the river.

Nice to get out of hotel room- take a walk or jog- and see the downtown area of the city from the other side of the river.

The other side of the river is better for a view. Don't take the underground train under the river. It is a tourist trap. Take the Metro and be there for less then 10%

A walk along the promenade gives you a great view of the new and exciting architecture on one side of the river and impressive colonial architecture on the other. Lovely to see from a river cruise especially at night.

This is really the other side of Bund, so you would only go there if you wanted the quieter time. If its good light, you might get some good photos here. I would recommend this for a good evening stroll.

There is very little to do here. Great views and picture opportunities. Shanghai is a financial center. Not a tourist center.

If you use your imagination, you can see the early 20th century westerners going about the business of commerce in China.
