About
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 Promenade is a must in Shanghai.

It will simply pull a Waow from you not because of the enjoyable stroll (if you have nice weather) but because of what lays on the other side of the river: The Shanghai World Financial Center Skyline.

Not only by Daylight but especially at NIGHT.
It is not without reminding Hong Kong skyline which also is more famous by night.
It is a firework of multi color lights, absolutely amazing.

It is actually even more impressing than in Hong Kong because the facades of the Sky Scrappers are used literally as TV screens showing not only light games like in Hong Kong but displaying sentences, comics, anything exactly like a computer screen.

I have attached many pictures as usual to make you better understand what I mean... .

As I have written before I have traveled in not a few places in the world and it takes a lot to surprise me.
But, even if I am repeating myself, this was indeed the case in Shanghai when the Skyline of it phenomenal sky scrappers was revealed to me from the Bund and this promenade.

It was almost the same amazement than we experienced when discovering the Grand Canyon of Colorado or the Taj Mahal...
We've been in New York and Hong Kong an d we thought we've seen it all as a matter of high rise buildings...But Shanghai gives a new definition of modern architecture and really of sky scrappers....

When I wad a kid I was I was amazed by the 300m of the Eiffel tower or the empire State building
Then later the 400 m of the Sears at Chicago or the Twins in New York
And 2 years ago it was the turn of this highest hotel in Hong Kong...
I had also read about Dubai tallest building on the world...

But seeing it for real in front of me, this group of over 400 meters buildings like midgets near the 632 m of the Shanghai Tower...
Stunning

By the way, I have written another review on the Shanghai Tower with several pictures...You might be interested...

From our 2 weeks tour on China, Shanghai Skyline from this Promenade is one of the most amazing places I have seen so far
It is absolutely well worth the trip and 1,500km from Beijing

Try not to miss it...

This promenade is the other side of Huangpu where the Bund Promenade is located. You get a view of the Bund from the other side of the river. It's good for taking a stroll and dining places are everywhere. It is also near the convention and exhibit halls of Pudong and walking distance to Superbrand Mall.

This riverside,the opposite side of the Huangpu river directly opposite to its sister the Bund at Puxi.,is usually given the miss by tourists.
Nevertheless if one could reach here it could even rival that of the Bund with a strong positive too., that is minus the disturbing crowd.It makes a good place to capture videos and photo shoots minus the sea of human heads.The breeze and air quality even seems to be better at this area.Ships sailing from this angle even look slower and tranquil.The colonial row of old buildings at the Bund looks elegant and glorious.,testamount as to why Shanghai was a major shipping hub even in the 18 th century.A smart row of fast food and cafes like the Hooters,Starbucks,Haagen Das etclined this stretch of promenade.Its close proximity to the high rises like SWFC,JinMao Tower and Oriental Pearl Tower plus some good shopping at the huge Superbrand mall with some nice restaurants in it makes this place even more attractive.Close to the underwater tunnel and the metro makes it so easily assesible.A place good for relaxing or even a yoga practice in this bustling city where a little privacy is hard to come by nowadays.

The Riverside Promenade boasts of prime location: on the one side there’s the Bund with gorgeous buildings of various Western styles and on the opposite – Pudong skyscrapers and Oriental Pearl Tower. I guess there’re few places in the world where you can see architectural evolution in the flesh and this is one of them. It’s a popular tourist area, fine for a stroll or boat trip. At night it looks absolutely fantastic! Tip: wrap up in something warm, if you go in winter, it’s too windy!

We walked the entire Bund and loved the broad esplanade ad the views across the water from all the beautiful lit buildings. We also took the most incredible night boat cruise to see the lights. It is an awesome sight that should not be missed. Tip: when you get in the boat, plant yourself by the railing so you can have a view of the entire sights without having to look at people's heads. And don't let anyone get into your space!

On this side of the Huangpu River it‘s definitely more quiet but not less interesting. The atmosphere invites to have a break especially during dawn since you‘re watching in the direction where the sun sets. We suggest like everywhere in big cities, to wear comfortable shoes. Recommended to stroll around here as well.

Across the river from the Bund, Binjiang promenade offers even closer views of the iconic Pudong skyline along with views of the Bund across the river. The Bund is nice, but constantly crowded and dirty. Binjiang promenade is far less crowded and much cleaner than the Bund promenade, with the added benefit of being able to walk into any of the famous Shanghai skyline landmarks should you wish to do so. There aren't quite as many dining options as there are on the Bund, but there are plenty of choices, and they are less pricey than their Bund counterparts, while still offering great food and more variety than on the Bund side.

Worth visiting at least once if you have the time while in Shanghai.

Nice day so we walked along the river along with thousands of other tourists and natives. Very agreeable. Little by little we got further and further until we decided to walk through the old French area which was a little detour and then worked our way back to Nanjing Road.

To get your bearings, this is probably the first place to visit in Shanghai. Strolling here is free and refreshing. It can get cold in winter (we've been twice in winter) but they've done a really great job renovating this boardwalk, allowing a wide avenue to accommodate the crowds (none in winter), lovely gardens and green grass and a way to view the river, Pudong (across the river) and the old colonial architecture which lines the Bund.
