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.

I read how enjoyable it was to take a walk on the promenade. This proved to be nearly impossible on a Saturday night in August. With the enormous number of people on the promenade, it was virtually at a standstill. Suggest that you find other times to enjoy the awesome views of the Pudong skyline both at day and night.

After we visited to expo, we came here to see the beauty of Shanghai. People are crowded out there coz of the tourists attraction area. Better check out the way photos before you visit there.

Alright, you’re not a fan of long walk or touristy areas. But the Riverside Promenade is something you should not miss when visiting Shanghai. It’s simply a must to give a good feel of what it’s like living in the city. A good one or two-hour stay will be enough.

Shanghai in summer gets bright by about 5.30am and the view of sunrise here is really quite amazing. At the same time, there is lots to see even early in the morning. There are people doing tai chi with their fan & music; joggers and also people flying kites and we even saw people playing badminton. However, because if it... More

Nice walk along the promenade, especially on a sunny day! There are great views of the city and the Huangpu River. At night, the view is extra special since you get to see all the great buildings on the other side light up in colors.

The place can be reached very easily and you will be able to access the promenade in several places. We felt that during the day there were less tourists and it could get pretty crowded in the evening. If you take a river tour, you can walk from there along the promenade until very near the Russian Embassy. On a... More

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

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.
