At the northern end of the Bund, Waibaidu Bridge (as the Garden Bridge is otherwise known) is one of the landmarks of the old city of Shanghai, and spans the Suzhou Creek at the point it joins the Huangpu River. It's worth crossing the creek...More

Brilliantly lit at night, accentuating the raw structural steel members of the structure, this old bridge was an unexpected find in the Bund area, amongst all the more modern and iconic buildings. Well preserved, it was a great example of synthesizing the old and the...More

Anyone interested in engineering will love this structure. The twin arch steel trusses and rivets will fascinate engineering students and those who love mechanical puzzles. Also offers a great vantage points for selfies with the bund and monument in the background.

While the bridge itself might not seem interesting at first glance, there is extensive history behind it and it's interesting to see some of Shanghai's older structures surviving alongside it's developing skyline. If you are interested in the historical context, it might also be worth...More

If you start from the historic building; Astor house hotel, Russian consulate and Broadway mansion, just cross this bridge you can start to walk along the Bund.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
