The Bund is a pleasant place to be although depending on the time it is very crowded. It is also a place where you want to keep your wallet in a hidden place as there are people there who would like to remove it!

Amazing sight at night when all lit up. Definitely a must see if you are in Shanghai. A river cruise is also a great way to see the sights.

The Bund offers excellent views of the Hangpu River and the Shanghai skyline. There are numerous restaurants and hotels in the area. Also, the German-inspired architecture is quite nice.

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous

Hi! I have a 5 hour layover in PVG (Shanghai Airport) from 1845-0000 and was wondering if i could make it here and how? And also would it be dangerous walking/traveling around so late? Would you recommend to just stay at the airport? Thanks for your thoughts!

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.

Are there any good budget accommodation (read 3 star) hotels available in the bund area? The ones I came across online are quite expensive. I would prefer the range within $50. The lower the cost the better but has to be clean. Is it a good area to stay for a tourist.

Bund is a high class area. Big companies have their office, banks are located in this area. The location wint hv such cheap price hotel. Try for hotels which are 2 to 3 kms away from the area, they might fit your budget.

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