Located on the Bund, its history dates back 1865. It was reconstructed many times and last one was in 1999. Currently, houses a museum of history of the Bund and a restaurant. Looks amazing in evening.

Great that authorities have maintained the old Gutzlaff Signal Tower amidst the colonial buildings along the Bund. A throw-back to the maritime commercial period of Shanghai. Interesting structure and history. Makes for a good meeting place at the southern end of the Bund.

An interesting little building which is at the southern end of the Bund. From here walk northward to see may iconic buildings from colonial period. If you read up on the history of the signal tower and the Bund then it'll be much more interesting to visit.

The signal station is called Gutzlaff signal tower, built in 1883. According to the information tables, it became a police station in 1953 and hosts the Bund museum since 1993. Interesting, yet small building.

A very scenic location near the river. The best time to visit is once it gets dark.. All the buildings would be illuminated and it is a beautiful view..! People who like extravagant city life might love this place. There are lot of places for shopping oriental things a mile or so near the bund. You could just walk from one place to another...…
