Everyone will be there but just tolerate the crowds and go at night for the best shots. Avoid the touts "Take our picture" "Tea Ceremony" and " Lady Massage"

The view from the Bund across the water is beautiful. It has a special feel to it! Old meets new and I hadn't felt the Shanghai experience had been complete without a trip here during the day and one at night for drinks at a roof top bar!

Do it not just for the history and the architecture but for the views over to Pudong - specially in the evening.

If u are in Shanghai for about 3 days and visiting places, you have passed by the skyscrapers a hundred times already. So there is no need to take out time to go to the bund and it is nothing different.

At night the lights on the buildings are mesmerizing. The sides of buildings are like giant television screens broadcasting huge messages and images. We walked the bund and took a little river cruise. Both were lovely. When we walked the bund, we noticed lots of security. There are also restrooms here and there along the path.

Great views of the business district across the river. It is an extremely popular area with good views, facilities and shops, Very easy to spend some time people watching and taking in the whole Shanghai experience.

jaw dropping display of wealth and power you'll see the whole side of a building being used for a movie screen, (for advertising of course), and the biggest tv screen I have ever seen mounted on another building the buildings have obviously been designed with their lighting displays built in - and its VERY effective! if you get the chance,...
