If you are in Shanghai, you must walk the bund. Even nicer at night with all the lights. If you can, take a boat ride.

This is where you’ll take the post-card picture of Shanghai. My favorite time is in the evening when the lights are on – European architectures from the last century on one side of the river, modern high-rises on the other; the busy skyline of Shanghai spotlighted along the 1.5-meter-long riverside promenade; prosperous yet a bit nostalgic. It’s hard not to... More

I stayed in Financial district for work and had opportunity to go over to the other side of the river and walk along the Bund. Very nice walk, very crowded but very safe (which I find pretty cool), and great views. Spring has now broken and many, many folks were out enjoying the weather and views! Take either the Water...

Shanghai's picturesque skyline, would recommend coming once during the day and once at night. During the day it is easier to see the buildings on the Puxi side, night is better to view the lights of the Pudong side with the Pearl and the other high-rise buildings. Great photo opportunities and lots of people watching.

We enjoyed walking along here and the view over the river is excellent. Many classical old building line one side then the new China on the other.

It's a nice place to walk around but too much people. Good view for both sides with great architectures! It's quite cold in March to walk around so better bring a good cloth to protect you.

Wai Tan's offers spectacular skyline. Especially in the evenings, when the lights come on, the view is breathtaking. And all this was built over the past 25 years. ... its simply amazing.

A long stretch of 19th Century buildings in various classical, Romanesque, and Gothic stylings It was the original commercial center of Shanghai as a treaty port during the 19th century. Marvelously preserved and presented, it forms the "before" half of the rise of Shanghai, an intriguing contrast to the Pudong development across the river.
