This was an attractive paved concrete area that was absolutely boiling hot in the daytime. It was interesting to see the buildings and river, but no more exciting than walking along the Thames in London.

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

5 hours? Yes it would take 1 hour 20-30 mins to get there by the subway and about 5 to 6 rmb, and you will spend an hour or 2, its just the Bund you want to see.

Sorry not sure, but Shanghai is pretty expensive - think London in terms of prices so $50 may be a challenge.
