These buildings were erected during the late nineteenth century by the French, British, and Germany. Looks like each of the big European powers wanted to control China. Each one is a world heritage site. They no longer fly their own flag but each has a Chinese flag on top.

It's a long street by the river. Usually I rarely have time to enjoy the city tour during my business visit.There were lots of awesome and good restaurants in the area, what surprised me is that I could find many western style restaurants here. Shanghai is a high developed city to compare all others in China, it's also the first... More

My husband and I were very impressed by the different architecture styles near the Huangpu River and The Bund. We wish we had more time exploring all the beautiful classical buildings in the area. Well preserved legacy!

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

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.
