Owner description: 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.

To get your bearings, this is probably the first place to visit in Shanghai. Strolling here is free and refreshing. It can get cold in winter (we've been twice in winter) but they've done a really great job renovating this boardwalk, allowing a wide avenue to accommodate the crowds (none in winter), lovely gardens and green grass and a way...

Very busy river action and wonderful architecture to enjoy. Can be crowded and there are some street vendors that can be a bit annoying, but all in all a nice stroll. I was advised to avoid the "dinner cruise boats" that leave from the riverside - the food can be tough for visitors - BUT the river cruise is awesome.

I simply loved this place. Its a nice place to walk around seeing various tourists from different walks of life. The view is amazing. Along your walk you get to see the different buildings which are awesome. If thirsty you can always reach out for a cold drink from the small shacks around.

this was a wide promenade where you could walk along, there were little stalls that did try and sell you things, great to look out on the river.

Very crowded but worth it as the view is stunning, even better at night. You have e vie of all iconic buildings and the river twisting around it.

A fun, but crowded stroll from Yu Yuan area up to the Bund. It is difficult to see the river as boats block most of the view. It's fun noticing how the buildings in Pudong seem to change as you move along the Promenade and view them from different angles.

Walking alongside the river is a fascinating experience with the historic Bund on one side and the modern Pudong on the opposite bank. For me, just watching the vast number of ships passing along the river was amazing. One guide book states that a third of China's trade passes along this river, something which I can now easily believe.
