Having transited through Shanghai many times and not having visited the city itself I had to make a stop this time and check out the famous skyline. It did not disappoint, the lit up skyline similar to Hong Kong is a great view to just sit and look at up, looks pretty great. It was cold during my time there... More

Being in Shanghai and not visiting Bund is like being in Rome and not seeing the pope. One of the MUST SEE places in Shanghai. As good by day as by night.

The Bund is a must do for any tourist. It is safe and well laid out. The architecture is so beautiful. How lucky it was to have this survive.

This walk is amazing. By day and by night are two complete different experiences. If you have time, go to both sides of the river to see the contrast, is just awesome.

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.
