For some reason I am pretty much into skyscrapers. Shanghai is a perfect place for that and especially the Bund. I had a nice walk there. It is crowded but people are really nice and friendly.

Don' miss a trip to the Bund at night. The lights on the buildings on both sides of the river are spectacular. And a boat ride at night makes the evening even more memorable. One of the highlights of our visit.

Nice for an overview of what’s where. Relaxing stroll along the riverfront with the hustle and bustle of barges, ferries and private boats.

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

You must access the Bund walking East Nanjing Road to the river. The best time is from sunset útil 22:30 h while the buildings shine.
