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.

“Magnificent at night!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

On our last night in Shanghai, we walked to the Riverside Promenade from our hotel, the Westin at Bund Center. It was a warm evening in March and many people were at the Promenade. The old, historic buildings across from the Promenade are spectacular at night, with all their lights giving a warm welcome. It really is reminiscent of London, with a clock on one building that reminded one of Big Ben! We all took many pictures as we walked along amidst the crowds. Across the River were the many skyscrapers, including the Pearl Tower, which kept changing the color of its lights! Several boats were on the River and they too were all lit up! It was a lovely evening and our whole family really enjoyed spending time at the Riverside Promenade! The flowers adorning the nearby walls were all in bloom, so one felt that Spring had arrived!

“A must do”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I reviewed this along with the Bund, but wanted to give it its own space in a review.

We took a short stroll with our guide for an hour or so, but returned on our own at night. There were many people, tourists and locals alike walking along and we felt very safe and comfortable.

The building lights from across the river rival none and we could have walked forever.

“Another promenade.”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is a promenade on the opposite side of the river from the Bund and is by far less impressive than the Bund itself.
However, the lights of Shanghai do look nice after dark even from this promenade.

“Great for an evening stroll.”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Shanghai's Bingjiand Dadao is a great place for a stroll in the evening, even though it was winter when we visited, and got a bit nippy when the wind started blowing. Thankfully, there were lots of nice places within easy walking distance to duck in for a warming drink or two along the way.
