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.

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.

Right on the Bund, this historic building has had an interesting history, moved to make way for a new road and converted into a bar. This unusual relic is currently closed for renovation.

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
