The old colonial banks and trading companies' buildings along the Bund are a reminder that the city was built as a trading port with the west - it isn't a city of great historical past unlike say Xian - the buildings are in the grand colonial style - forming a fascinating counterpart to the new financial district across the river.

Interesting exhibits ....highlighted by a huge wooden model of Shanghai when the final phases of the city reconstruction / renovation efforts are completed. Will be a world class city when completed.

The Bund is an area that you must have seen. The tunnel is expensive while the ferry is cheap. For food and drinks this attraction should be compared with the Champs Elisees! Behind the Bund normal life does well exist!

This is the place to be for pictures, drinks and dining, most of the best restaurants in the area and the best view of the bay.

Living in China, this was a nice surprise. To ever so slightly feel like I was not in Asia without flying for hours was a wonderful experience.

We strolled down the Bund on the first night in Shanghai and it definitely was the highlight of the night. Then walked along of the narrow roads and found a cute little jazz pub. Just seeing the buildings lit up is worth going!

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.
