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.

One of the world's great city views

You can't miss this. The flower wall, the incredible view of Pudong, the statue of Mao, the crowds, the river, the silhouette of the Peace Hotel....

So nice to stroll along the promenade in the evening, watching the people, the river, the Bund, the lights. Have a backback with picknick, look for a nice place an have a rest.

Go in the evening to see how the well lit Bund and TV tower, or in the early morning for a jog. Don't forget to take the cruise from one side to the other - it's RMB 2 only!

Lovely view across the river. Should go in the evening. Best is to start walking from the Nanjing road and you will reach the bund area. Keep walking along the river and you reach a magical world, all of a sudden.

This was the first time I had seen the Huangpu from the bank opposite to the Bund. It's because we were staying in Pudong instead of the city. I think it's worth seeing the views from both sides. They are both stunning and worth the time.

A great place to view all the impressive buildings across the river, that not long ago was all farming land. It always seems to be crowded, but in a city of 24 million and all the visitors, then this is to be expected. You need to see it once if in town.

This promenade goes by the old buildings of Shanghai, where the foreign powers had their headquarters. Nice history of old Shanghai and view of newer area across the river.

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.
