    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

    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
