Situated by the river, opposite of Shanghai modern business center, classic Architectures on The Bund boast the city's financial peak, this is the must visit for all travellers in Shanghai. It is where the true history of Shanghai began. I visited both during the day and at night. The best time to scroll around this street is at twilight, where... More

I visited the Bund 20 years ago and returned in 2016 on a holiday. On my first visit I was fancinated by the old buildings many of which were in need of maintenance, I was pleased to see a lot of money had been spent in the years that followed and that this area now capitvated the past in a...

Magnificient view on 4 of Shanghai's tallest skyscrappers. Having the experience of going on top of Burj Khalifa (World's tallest building), a bit dissappointed because unable to enter Shanghai Tower (2nd tallest) due to time constraint. However really enjoyed the great view of the modern city. Lots of architectural info at the buildings along the Bund area. Can see many... More

If you want an amazing view of Shanghai visit the Bund area ... in addition to the views the area is filled with great hotels and restaurants.

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.

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.
