A must-visit in shanghai! Beautiful buildings, great light. But if youre going go around sunset and stay there when it's completely dark, you'll see the beautiful stages of the scenery

The charm comes out at night time - it is great to see these sculptures which reflects the history of the city - I think it would be better if they added say a tress corridor or cover parts of the bund in flowers and plants - much needed to promote environmental awareness so forgotten in this country. I love... More

A nice area to look over PuDong with it's Oriental Pearl Tower and the other tall buildings! I went on a raining day and the clouds presented a view that is very different and worth seeing.

A beautiful place to visit. Traveled during the day and it was so pretty but you must see at night. The lights look so beautiful. You have he modern on one side and the old on the other side of the Bund. A lovely walk even just watching people pass by. cc

Old buildings and perfect lighting on them paint a colonial type of feel when looking at the sculptures from The Bund. Truly a must see in the evening. There are a lot of photo shoots happening so don't be alarmed at all the ball gowns! There is a river cruise but I drove around by taxi and walked the rest... More

Colonial Buildings at their best! In the day the buildings are grey and not anything special. At night they are lit up with gold lights and it looks like something out of Vienna! it is beautiful and graceful, You will see many people taking wedding pictures.

Something that cannot be missed in Shanghai is an evening river cruise to see the dramatically lit architectural delights that compose the "sculputres". A 45 minute trip costs very little, and is truly spectacular. Shanghai is a city of architecture. On one side of the river you see buildings you might see in London. On the other side, are the...

I'm not sure if this listing is about The Bund itself (which is listed seperately) or about sculptures. There are a few statues and sculptures around here. Does this listing refer to the Bull, the two lions Stephen and Stitt outside the old HSBC building ? The two bronze lions are very well made.

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.
