  • If you've traveled to New York, the Bund (especially at night) will bring back great memories. Beautiful esplanade with incredible views of the Pudong district. The buildings on the other side, deco style are also remarkable. China had such a prosperous period that this area was called the Wall Street of the East. By the way, China is very prosperous, no more communism, it's ancient history, long live capitalism!

  • The classic Old Shanghai in its glory. You can see the contrast of old & new Shanghai or China as it represents. The night walk is better than day time in my opinion to enjoy the area. But be aware of the weather as pollution is quite apparent in major city like Shanghai. From here you walk towards Nanjing Street to enjoy the night Market & shops just within minute walk.
  • Very hard to describe this place and what you feel. The words coming the closest to that are overwhelming and breathtaking. On the Bund side itself, there is a huge mix of buildings’ architecture coming from all over the world and is magnificent. On the other side of the Bund you face the Shanghai skylines and you just feel a very small tiny person very appreciative that you are there at that moment!
