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.

If you are looking for a relaxing walking area and a bit privacy near the city center and especially near Pudong or place nearby to do some jogging and experience less traffic, this is one of those areas. Usually not too crowded. Air is a bit better here near the river.

Between 7 and 9 am there are less people. Otherwise go at night and enjoy the hustle and bustle. The night views of Bund, Pudong across teh river, and the ships passing, is not to be missed.

It's possible to walk a good distance along the promenade, with pleasant views of the busy river and river banks.

Plenty of walking area and many interesting sights are available, along with countless restaurants. The Oriental Pearl is close by, and with sufficient river depth, there is a continious parade of ocean-going ships.

Enjoy the view along the river, take pictures and you won't be alone for sure. Clean and entertaining area. Highly recommended in the evening for a colorful view on the landscape.

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
