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.

Across the river from the Bund, Binjiang promenade offers even closer views of the iconic Pudong skyline along with views of the Bund across the river. The Bund is nice, but constantly crowded and dirty. Binjiang promenade is far less crowded and much cleaner than the Bund promenade, with the added benefit of being able to walk into any of... More

Walking along the side, it was so comfortable and romantic. I highly recommended to come here at late afternoon and enjoy the sunset and Shanghai skyline

I love my early morning walks in every place I visit and the riverside in Shanghai is no exception. It is almost sureal in the early morning haze, fog, or smog or whatever you like to call it with a red early morning sun. Along the promenade you see the river boat traffic, kite flyers, boot camp marchers and others... More

Across from the Bund, and alongside the Huangpu River, this is a modern city promenade, worth it for the views of Pudong across the river. Shanghai has a population of 13m, the largest city in the world, so there's a fair chance there'll be a bit of a crowd!! No problems with that - it's part of the fun of... More

The promenade is a nice walk if you get there at the right time. Sure, there are 10 million tourists taking selfies and posing for the perfect profile picture, yet you can just walk 10mins down the promenade and be away from many of the people. We didn't really get hassled by anyone and enjoyed the walk. The boat across... More

Excellent views on both sides of the river, a good place to walk in the early morning. By mid-morning, it gets busier & busier as the day progresses. I would avoid it when its really busy, but certainly have a walk in the evening, when all the lights are on

Nice promenade. Can spend time early morning or evening for a walk by the river. Can see boats go by and skyline- Architecture is worth noticing in many of the buildings around.

interesting views of river, and historic buildings. Many gardens, shops, scenic views. Safe travel, although, as an American, there are numerous street vendors that will sometime harass you.
