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.

We are travelers who love to visit a city friendly to be explored by walking... and this was a great gift. We promenaded here twice: once in the morning and then early evening. Both were enjoyable: the morning peaceful breeze and the early crowded evening adorned by all the lights of the skyscrapers! Very enjoyable!

A really long stretch of the promenade, give you a very nice view of the bund and the river. What was surprising there was there was only a few stalls selling drinks and printed T-shirts. Worth the walk

Best taken in at dusk/dark to take in the full beauty of the place. Very popular with all ages. There are a few small cafes just below the promenade in places for the quick respite.

Went to the Bund many times. The views are stunning, every time of the day. The evening lights add a fairy tail feeling. A must see when you visit Shanghai

This is an excellent place for walking along the promenade and viewing the old and new skylines of Shanghai. It is wide and well-paved with access steps everywhere. It is also a place to see and be seen. When we were there, several newly married couples were having their photos taken dressed in the Wedding Gowns and Tuxes.

Check out the Designers Mall while there. Great place to visit. Food locations. I believe there's a TGI Fridays

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

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.
