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.

Best Views of New Shanghai

From this promenade you have the best view of the New Shanghai business center. Hard to believe all those building are under 20 years old.

While there were a few exhibits that were being refurbished and were therefore closed, the jade exhibit and mask exhibit were standouts in my memory.

You can't go wrong with a stroll down the promenade, day or night. Or take the river cruise and enjoy the lights and architecture. If you want to go big, you can even check out the rooftop bar of "M on the Bund". Follow it up with a shopping trip on Nanjing Road. Either way, it's yours to enjoy. A... More

This is a must do when visiting Shanghai. I would recommend to visit it twice. Once during the day and once during the night. Actually, you can come here more than twice, this is such a magnificent walk, I don't think I will ever get tired of it. Shanghai is such an amazing city. The Pudong skyline must be of... More

The views here along the river are really amazing. Shanghai has a very impressive skyline and this is a great place to enjoy it, do some people watching and take photos. The promenade is well maintained and wide enough that when I went, it wasn't too crowded. Great for strolling at any time of day.

While in Shanghai for work, my husband accompanied me and we came in a few days early to take in the sites. We happened upon the Promenade while on our way to the Bund and enjoyed the view and walk

Specially nice in the evening just before sunset, then you can see how the lights start to turn on. Don't take the river cruise! You will pay 100 yuan for nothing. Yo will see the same than you can see from the promenade.

You walk on the other side of The Bund, so the skyrise is much closer. Took a walk after dinner at a restaurant nearby, then took the ferry and crossed to Bund and walked some more.
