It is really amazing. We enjoyed it a lot. Especially in the night it looks much better. It's a little bit a shame that you cannot find any ferry ( or we didn't search long enough ) but you can get to another side with the subway too

Splendid river front reminiscent of Liverpool. Be sure to look inside of the buildings for beautiful interiors.

Cool area top hotels and Restraunts and nice views of the pondong area. Definitely worth seeing and walking around in and short taxi ride from hotel. Taxis are cheap in China.

This is the best first place to go, to orient yourself, and to take in the wildly diverging landscape that is modern Shanghai.

The view of the various Shanghai buildings and waterfront along the bund is very beautiful and a must see. Watching the scenery and taking photos is pretty much the only thing to do, and it gets very busy, but it's still worth it!

great view from deck of the Rosevelt. Visit the bottle opener view point as well. Well worth it. Most cosmopolitan city I have been in. I have been to many around the world.

If you are in Shanghai you cannot skip the Bund.Beautiful promenade. Pudong side looks differently after ech 100 feet of walk. I could not stop taking pictures. The Bund side with early 20-th century European architecture and red flags is also very impressive.

This is a must see activity in Shanghai especially at night, but watch your belongings as it gets very crowdy. For fewer people, just walk left or right a couple of meters and you're almost alone.

certainly the best place to see in Shanghai. Just walking on the Promenade (day like night) to enjoy the magnificient view on the Pudong financial district on the other side of the river. Very crowded. The Symbol of Shanghai.
