This street always has people on it. At 10pm on a Sunday the place is jam packed and fascinating. Probably not a place for shopping as it is all high end but worth a walk for the experience.

A nice stroll down Nanjing is the heart of The Shanghai shopping experience. Get your walking boots on as its a long way from top to bottom, the bottom being the Bund. As you would expect even on a week day there was thousands of...More

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
