This was with out a doubt one of our favorite sights to see in Shanghai. The stroll along the waterway and the sights were impressive. We enjoyed people watching and the different angles and views you get of the sky line are unique.

The sight and view of the Bund with Pearl Tower and all the huge Commercial Building in the background was fantastic. It is very crowded most of the time. But it is nice to stroll along the Bund enjoying the view.

Don't go during weekends or holidays. Instead try weekday nights...bar rouge is the perfect place to go if you want to have an amazing view of the whole bund area, and have that tourist photo taken haha.

As a solo traveler, I try to get in as much local sights as possible. This is a must see especially at night. The lights are amazing and shouldn't be missed. I even got a chance to take a ferry to get a larger view.
