architecture is great and you can certainly see influences of other cultures that have been in Shanghai. very much dominates the Bund and photos shots are great. If into old buildings this is so worthwhile. can't miss it if on Bund.

A visit to Shanghai is incomplete without immersing yourself along Wai Tan (The Bund). Beautifully preserved buildings showcasing nostalgic international architecture of Shanghai’s yesteryears. Perhaps, one of the best known is the Peace Hotel where they still play romanticised ‘oldie’ jazz music orchestrated by dedicated ‘grey power’ musicians of amusing vintage. There are also some trendy nightclubs in some of... More

About a mile's worth of Renaissance, Baroque, Classic and Gothic architecture is massive building on the west side of the Huangpu River. Worth seeing.

Highly recommended for a promenade. Enjoy beautiful/historical and very well preserved buildings, each representing a piece of Shanghai's legendary past. In some cases I had this "I wished I was there" feeling.

The design of all these buildings are just too nice. You should come at night and you can see the beautiful view with when the lights are all on on the building. Nice!

The complete area looks awesome at night. Enjoy a leisurely stroll in a very safe Shanghai. Take note of all the police vehicles lined up at the bund. We counted 15 cop cars one afternoon. I don't know of any other large city with colonial architecture on one side of the river & super modern on the other.

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.
