Modern, electric street filled with shops, eateries, and lovely restaurants tucked away up above the street level. Some can be tricky to find but are worth the effort.

This was one of the most disappointing experiences that you can get in Shanghai. The street is super crowded and very expensive in general. To add to the woes, there are people soliciting and approaching every other step. Avoid this at all costs!

Lots of modern shops and also great for walking along this stretch of road. Many food outlets to try out including local and western chains. It was drizzling and despite the heavy crowd, we took our time and enjoyed the stroll.

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
