“It is The Bund”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

During the day there isn't much to see: Pudong's corporate and government ego against a polluted sky, and some semi-old buildings on the west bank. At night the lights are fairly attractive. It's not like Hong Kong - there isn't a show, so ten minutes might be enough - but it is Shanghai's self-proclaimed glory, so should be checked out.

“Awesome! Don't miss.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Very very cool old architecture. Get a guide book that tell about the different buildings and the story of how they came to be....very cool and interesting. Go during the day around 1pm and again around dust to dark. It is beautiful.

“Night Time is the Right Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

...to walk the Bund. We walked in the day and the night, and the nightly light show is definitely better. During the day, smog, fog, whatever obscures the views across to Pudong. When the lights come on, it is like Las Vegas on steroids, with lit-up cruise ships parading by, the Pearl Tower changing colors, and all the other skyscrapers putting on spectacular light shows. The railing on the river side is packed with Shanghainese and tourists alike oohing and aahing over the show. Just watch your wallet and ignore all the scams and sales pitches!
