The Bund has lots of tourist walking and taking pictures of the view of Shanghai. It was crowded that time but we were still able to get the good spot in taking pictures. Walking along the bund is also relaxing and a nice experience.

Saw it by day then took the cruise by night. Wow just wow. A must do if visiting Shanghai. Amazing how the river so gently divides the old from the new.

By day it’s bustling with couples and families. By night you can watch the lighted boats try to out do each other. Great for a run, walk, sightseeing, relaxing.

Best part of Shanghai trip was visiting this area. Opposite you will find European-style buildings lined up along the road.

Watch the locals promenade by day in their new fashion purchases or be amazed by the number of building material carrying barges or from dark until 10.00 pm be amazed by the lights from the buildings and their colourful reflection in the river.

There is great new and old architecture to view, worth a look if you're in town and appreciate architecture.

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

The Bund does have nice restaurants. However, close to the people's square you will find a lot of restaurants. Best is to visit a few and then select one. If you like fish and seafood, some have fresh tanks so you can select... More
