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.

Western style restaurants and cafes, more than needed. Nice view on The Bund. Recommend going there in the early morning which is less crowded. Pretty busy place in the evenings, especially during summer.

Well the Promenade is well constructed and provides a very good view but be cognizant of the Air Quality if you choose to take a walk. There are a number of restaurants and pubs as well and this is a really happening place in the evening. Watch out for Con artists and scammers though.

I like this area as it gives a very different feel to the banks of the Hangpu River in Shanghai. It is an easy Metro ride over to the Pudong area where you can stroll the promenade. There a re a few nice coffee shops and restaurants along the walkway.

We walked along the promenade during the day and again in the evening and both times it was very busy, bustling with life and activity. Whilst the view is the same its also different as the lights at night across to PuDdong are fabulous and then turning around and looking back at the buildings lit up in the Bund is... More

the Riverside Promenade has a very pleasant atmosphere, especially at night. The contrast between the old and the new, between the river and the urban modernism is beautiful. Highly recommended for a short stroll

I saw it first time when I arrived here, a ton of people, walking in complete different ways, kind of chaotic. Other time I went here with my customers and after that to show my mom and sister. Some people asked us to take pictures with them. You have to be careful on your wallet and bag here. Water is... More

A magnet for young people out to look trendy. The view of the skyline is the real highlight so take your camera. Catch a riverboat tip or just use the very cheap ferry to take to the water.

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
