Owner description: 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.

“Not for a cloudy evening!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

There were some beautiful flower displays along the riverwalk, but the day we were there was cloudy, foggy, and rainy so we could barely see across the river! At night, we could see the lights on the boats on the river and the lights on the lower parts of buildings, but that was all. Nice area to walk, but not much to see other than the big muddy river.

“Brilliant by day-stunning at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

At night most of the buildings on both sides of the river are illuminated with moving light displays and the river filled with illuminated boats. The views from one of the trip boats is even better. Not to be missed.

“Nice view- equal to the other riverside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

After walking the bund, we decided to try the other side. This time you have the skyscraper right above you.
Its a wide, long promenade, that sits direct on the river.
There are many coffee shops and some restaurants all along the way, with a nice garden is along the city side.
There is a direct entrance to the Super Brand Mall on the promenades east side, which is the quickest way to get there from the subway.
Overall a nice view day and night of the Bund and the boats on the river.
We went on an weekday afternoon and had the promenade to ourselves.
