Top ways to experience The Bund City Sculptures
The area
Address
Neighborhood: People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
How to get there
  • Yuyuan Garden • 4 min walk

I always try to take an evening walk down the Bund should I be in the city and staying in the Nanjing Road area. I love the river walk and looking at the lights and people. The place somehow still give me a feel of the old Shanghai glory days. It is still very much a glorious city.

A must visit, for sure, but I keep returning to take in different angles each time. Get inside where you can and slowly take it in and study whatever is available there.

Most people who visit Shanghai want to see the Orient Pearl, Shanghai Tower, and the Pudong skyline, but don't overlook the incredible old buildings on the city side of the river. Such a wonderful collection of classical, Gothic, Roman, and Baroque structures, many dating back to the early 20th century! Whether you visit during the day, or night when they are lighted, they are awesome to see.

don't need to spend too much time, probably driving by would be good enough. I wouldn't consider as a tourist location, but good to pass by once

Come in the day early afternoon when the crowds are small. Very busing around sunset so go and have dinner. Come back later in the evening when everyone has left.

Great city views.

From early morn until sunset, lots to see and admire by the Huangpu river. Magic train rides under the river with not a leak....fantastic views of old wealth, modern wealth, kite flying and tai chi to join in. Pyjmamaed elders enjoying thr sunshine and doing leg and hand coordination exercises. Eighty year old women lifting their legs and drapping them over their shoulders to maintain flexibility...great example to us sedentary foreigners.

Must see during day and during night. The bund is very interesting and the view is fantastic. U can take a boat for one hour but unfortunately they don’t speak in English but just Chinese although it is for tourists.

OK, so there are probably plenty of places around China that still have sculptures of the Chairman, but we had yet to seen one. So, just had to take a selfie. Crowded and hot, even in the morning.

The Bund City Sculptures

There are a number of statues, sculptures, memorials, towers and about 50 historical buildings alongside Bund on River Huangpu in central Shanghai. This is the best place for visit in late afternoon. There stand on eastern side of the Bund alongside Zongshan Road the magnificent buildings of different European architectural styles including Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque, Classicism and the Renaissance which once housed trading offices and banks of England, France, America, Italy, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Belgium and Russia. Between the Bund and Zhongshan Road following interesting memorial and statues can still be seen.
Monument to the People’s Heroes
There is a simple tall tower erected in Huangpu Park at the northern end of Bund alongside River Huangpu towards Waibaidu Bridge which is assigned as Monument to the People’s Heroes or Shanghai People Yingxiong Memorial in the line of another monument of the same name erected in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. This tower is erected as memorial to those soldiers and heroes who laid down their lives in the Second Opium War (1856-60) imposed by the allied powers of England, France and America against the Chinese to sell opium in China forcibly in return for silk, tea and porcelain.
Chen Yi Square

At the end of Nanjing East Road near Bund, across Zhongshan Road (named after Dr. Sun Yatsen) there is standing the bronze statue of Marshal Chen Yi (1901-1972 AD) who was the first Communist mayor of Shanghai. This part of Bund is called Chen Yi Square. Chen Yi was a politician and an important military commander of Communist Party. You will see hundreds of people making photographs with this statue. A horrible pandemonium accident took place at this place on 31 December, 2014 when a crowd of 300,000 people gathered here for New Year Celebrations and a stampede occurred killing 36 and injuring about 50 people.
There are few other statues and memorials like the famous Sculpture of the Bull, the Statue of Mighty Man, etc.
