  The Bund, Shanghai
by JohanIsWeg

One of the world's primary promenades curves along the Huangpu River and separates the historic and statuesque European architecture of the 1920s and 1930s from the glittering and dynamic architecture of modern China.

The Bund is a microcosm of Shanghainese life with local residents using the public space for fitness (tai chi), entertainment (kite-flying) or business (photography), while domestic and international tourists throng the broad footpaths to take in the magnificent views.

The Bund is also a springboard for cruises along the Huangpu River (both day and night), fine dining and wining at establishments in several of the historic buildings, and even a sightseeing tour through a tunnel linking Puxi to Pudong.

The Bund is a must-see.

Address: Puxi or west bank of Huangpu River
Directions: A short walk heading east from East Nanjing Road station (lines 2 and 10).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
