Walking along the Bund is probably the best sight seeing event in Shanghai. A night stroll is a must.

I had the pleasure of visiting Shanghai for business with time for some pleasure. The day before flying out I ventured down to the Bund. It was very long, and enjoyable to walk. However, it is prevelent to see all of the effects of pollution due to the over population of this city. Even though I did enjoy to walk... More

During the day and particularly the evening, this walk way gets too crowed. We enjoyed walking and people watching in the early morning and really enjoyed the rooftop view from the Penninsula Hotel Bar!

The Bund is a must see for any trip to China. It is a reminder of past historical events, mostly European, and the on-going relationship between Europe and China. The Huangpu River faces the Pudong district and it is great for picture taking. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk. As you explore the Bund you will see building... More

This is nothing more than a wall that has various types and colours of flowers growing on it. Nothing special, just a nice wall that probably doesn't rate its own attraction as it's just a part of the Bund promedade.

The Valentine Wall is the wall covered with flowers that is the first thing a tourist see's as it crosses the street and before it climbs the stairs to the sightseeing promenade. The wall and sightseeing promenade is actually a giant flood control retaining wall that was built in the 1960's. The name Valentine wall goes back to this time,... More

This is just a wall, covered with some beautiful flowers. Nothing more, nothing less. No information is ever given on the origin of the wall, nor its purpose, which is a shame. Still, it's easy on the eye while at the Bund.

This is a nice little section of the Bund with flowers that is nice and peaceful. After strolling across the bund this is a nice section to see with the picturesque views of the Pudong district in the background. It is worth seeing only as part of the Bund promenade walk, but I wouldn't go out of your way to... More

Very pretty long wall full of flowers in small vases hanging off it. Very unusual and great idea. Situated towards the left side of the Bund as you face the Huangpu River.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
