If you are lucky, the weather is good and the pollution is low - then you will be treated to a magnificent view of the most modern and impressive part of Shanghai. Especially memorable if you like me, come from a city with very few high rise buildings.

Didn't know what to expect from Shanghai at all but I was surprised to see such types of architect filling the landscape. You can see the evolution of Shanghai through these buildings, starting with the side streets which has the authentic old Chinese neighborhoods and then the British impact on the city along the waterside. You will naturally see this... More

Go for a nice stroll around evening along the Bund and watch the lights come on along Zhongshan East road. Plenty of people and numerous couples getting their wedding photos taken with the International buildings in the background

The view along the water walk around the bund is beautiful in the day but breath taking at night as all of the buildings are colorfully lit up and glowing in beauty. Some vendors are allowed, lots of individuals walking around with selfie sticks.

A group of 20 (Wendy Wu tour) took a night cruise to marvel a the city lights. Spectacular views of colourful skyscrapers on one side of the river and majestic colonial buildings on the other side.

For those with even a remote interest in how cities evolve over time, this is a great place. You can learn quite a bit about Shanghai and what it will look like in the future. the exit leads you to a underground place designed like old Shanghai. Very enjoyable and worth spending about 2 hours or so.

If one looked closely at the amazing buildings around here, you can imagine how much planning & money that has gone into making these buildings. They are not just plain buildings but an art by itself. Many are very unique & has world class awesome architectures; not the usual run of the mill designs. Understand from our local friend that...

Juxtaposed against the contrasting new age architecture across the Pudong river it is displayed to best advantage. A delightfull scene to be viewed best by river boat in the evening. Be sure to pop into the Waldorf Astoria for a drink at the famous long bar.

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.
