We arrived just in time for the transition from day to night, and saw the Bund come alive with the unbelievable colours of the lights of the building. It is a beautiful sight over the water and well worth the time to walk along and take a tour. Book the tour yourself though if you are in a group, as the group leaders will add a very healthy margin for the trouble of taking you to the dock (250% in our case).

For me, the Bund was the most beautiful place we visited during our 2-day stay in Shanghai. We visited in January 2013 during our honeymoon, and the temperature was around 2 degrees Celsius on the night that we went there. We walked from Nanjing Pedestrian Street going to the Bund at around 5:30 PM. It was cold, considering that my companion and I are from the tropics. The wall flower, the lights, the architecture, and the temperature were all a good mix for a leisurely stroll. Just don't forget to bring gloves and wear clothes appropriate for the weather.

Go at night. See the lighted buildings at Pudong across the river. This is where you will take the photos you'll use for your holiday card or the cover of your photo book.

It's one of the things you "just have to see" when you visit a place. Great view of Chinas booming economy in form of the skyline, but packed with people. If you are tall and "different" (not asian) expect a lot of people wanting to take a picture with you.

This is clearly the place to be, to see and be seen. Great views, and the freshest air you are bound to get within a 50-mile radius. I don't suggest jogging here, as you may do more damage than good to your respiratory health, but it is good for strolling or biking. Or just people-watching, like the Champs Élysées in Paris or the Southbank in London.
