  The Bund
by karen75

The Bund is an area in Shanghai which runs along the bank of the Huangpo River and faces the Pudong skyline. It's a popular area for tourists to flock to at night as the area is alive with people and is all lit up.

Along the Bund there are 52 buildings with various architectural styles, some of which include Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Beaux-Arts, and Renaissance. It's a strange sight to see such styled buildings all together in one area and in China of all places. You'd think you'd only see such buildings in Europe.

The Peace Hotel, which is a famous hotel, is also located on the Bund.

We hung out on the waterfront for about half an hour which was just enough to take a lot of pictures of Pudong and the Bund.
