The riverside walk along the Bund may be busy and crowded during the day, but with good reason - it's simply a must when in Shanghai for people-watching and getting a good feel for the city.

Promenade in the evening

We walked along the promenade towards the evening and it was very enjoyable, beautiful scenery looking at the tall buildings on the other side of the river.

Enjoy spectacular views of Pudong, across the Huangpu River, specially during the evenings with all the magic lights of Pudong in the background.

This is a great place to walk along as its very flat so easy to walk no matter what your age. You get amazing views here of the bund area and the skyline. Lots of tourist but well worth a visit, I came here about 4 times in 5 days :-)

A great raised area for a great view of the skyline. Take a picnic and enjoy on one of the many benches, it's a great spot for people watching

It was CNY and there are so many people wherever we go. It was just packed. We have a great walk along the river which offers beautiful scene of skyscrapers, ferries, boats and more. It was an enjoyable walk for me and my husband although the weather was cold and windy. We went there twice, in the morning and also... More

Nice walk along the river on the Pudong side, with views of the heritage architecture of the Bund across the river. There are also some decent restaurants, cafes and bars along the route.

Long stretch down by the River! Best time would be between 5pm and 8pm. Lots of nice eateries and bars around with great deals for afternoon tea/lunch. There are small stands selling water etc. I could spend my whole day just sitting here. Bad note: you do see dead fish floating around. and live fish as well in the river... More

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.
