The riverside walk along the Bund may be busy and crowded during the day, but with good reason - it's simply a must when in Shanghai for people-watching and getting a good feel for the city.

This a a very nice walk on a sunny day. The view of the skyscrapers on the other side of the river is just beautiful. The promenade is nicely landscaped with flowers and the walls of the promenade in some areas are landscaped with flowers. It is also nice sitting there and watching the boat traffic on the river.

This is the easy and cheap way to enjoy this part of Shanghai, guaranteed not to disappoint. The Huangpu River divides Shanghai into Pudong (East side) and Puxi (West side) of the river. On Pudong there are Lujiazui modern skyscrapers. Across the river is Puxi, this is the cultural old financial and business district. Both sides have their unique beauty.... More

It's a great place to stroll along the river and enjoy the view and to watch the people. Better go there both during the day and in the evening.

lovely promenade along the river, just down from the apartment building I used to leave from January 2011 to June 2016. Lovely atmosphere and good also for jogging or just having a nice walk.

The Riverside Promenade is a great way to introduce yourself to Shanghai. The walkway can be quite busy as it is popular with both tourists and locals, and there is always something to see.

This is a nice area to stroll along although it does get busy with many others doing the same. There are a few coffee shops and cafe's nearby.

It is a great promenade and will make a great place for exercising. Nice view depending on the weather. More plants, trees and some garden will be even better

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.
