“nice walk”(27 reviews)
The riverside walk along the Bund may be busy and crowded during the day, but with good reason - it's simply a must when in Shanghai for people-watching and getting a good feel for the city.

day or night great views. However, if you are there for the lights it is a great experience. A great point of Old Shanghai to watch the New Shanghai.

Despite sometimes being a crowded area there is plenty of room to stroll and be amazed by the sights. Smog and pollution can be a problem at times however the area itself is clean and well maintained

The whole area could be pretty but again way too many people and the air is so think with smog you can't see to the other side of the river. Visit at your own risk. Nothing much to see.

One of the many promenades along huangpu river. Not as famous as the bund one. This is the binjiang or west bund one. Because it’s quieter, better for jogging, roller blading, cycling

The two things are completely different. The promenade is a nice place for a stroll or walk. Just have a nice time taking in the sights and enjoying the view.
