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

5 hours? Yes it would take 1 hour 20-30 mins to get there by the subway and about 5 to 6 rmb, and you will spend an hour or 2, its just the Bund you want to see.
