If you can do a river cruise at night, as boy does Shanghai light everything up!! We also went for a walk during the day. Just an amazing city, very clean and had the feeling of being spacious.

Not to be missed. A sunning contrast between east and west and colonial and modern China (the historic Bund on one side of the river and brash Pudong on the other). However, the Bund is also a major tourist trap, and I'm ashamed to say...More

Wonderful popular area for couples/families/singles. Super view if you catch it without mist at night. Chinese frequent in numbers, even wedding photos being taken here.

Great place to view the river and the river traffic. One side has all the modern skyscrapers and the other the older style buildings. Lovely for a walk.

Early in the morning, the Bund is filled with old men flying kites and classes of tai chi with most people in pastel silk pajamas. During the day, it is filled with tourists, just enjoying the activity and the view and at night it is...More

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
