If this is your first time to Shanghai, you have to visit The Bund 外滩. Great spot for a picture of the beautiful Pudong skyline and massive skyscrapers. I’ve been several times and it’s a different view and experience every time.

The Bund is a waterfront area in Shanghai with a rich history and vibrant tourist scene. There are light shows at night, but even the day time is inspiring. The day I went it was overcast with low hanging clouds, so visability was quite poor....More

Went at night however unfortunately there was not lighting at all even on Shanghai tower. I guess they want to save electricity or something? Very disappointing, maybe I went at the wrong time??

No need to spend money. Just go and have a look about the place. Given shanghai air quality don’t waste your money going up the pearl tower

I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely the buildings look. The colours are amazing. When you arrive along the promenade walkway, try to avoid taking in the views/taking photos in the middle section right where main access can be made to the walkway. Keep walking...More

The place is really nice. I spend the Christmas day here. The skyline is very beautiful. Only downside, a lot of pimps on the street offering massage or sex! Government need to get rid of that!

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

You can ride a train and stop at East Nanjing Road station and find Exit 7. On your left is a Forever 21 store. Follow the signs from that street. You need to walk around 500-800 meters approximately to reach The Bund. Hope... More
