This is a great place to get views of the Pudong high rises and the river. The old architecture is very interesting, telling a lot about the history of the city.

Unfortunately we arrived just in time to see all the lights go off at 11pm, but looked wonderful from a distance. Will have to go back another time.

The Bund is a very nice place for a walk, is extremely beautiful in the evening and night time that we can take a lot of pictures. It’s one of the top sightseeing spots in Shanghai that you shouldn’t miss absolutely!!!!

Interesting and everyone should see. I spent about an hour walking and was approached more than 30 times by venders, scam artists, women looking for conversation, black marketers, etc. It was a bit unnerving. When I ignored them some got very hostile. I was alone...More
