No better view of the skyline than on the Bund. Please note that there are two sides -- the Puxi side, across the river from the skyline, and the Pudong side, on the other side of the river. The Pudong side is more spacious and...More

The Bund is a must in Shanghai, although it really isn't a place to hang out for too long. There's little street activity (shops, food) nearby, although there are lots of restaurants inside those Colonial-era buildings lining the Bund. It's more fun to walk around...More

Nothing I can add to the thousands of other reviews, but can just add superlatives! Incredible and spectacular scene of the river, colonial buildings and the Pudong skyline.

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
International Settlement run by the British and
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

You can ride a train and stop at East Nanjing Road station and find Exit 7. On your left is a Forever 21 store. Follow the signs from that street. You need to walk around 500-800 meters approximately to reach The Bund. Hope... More
