This walkway along the Huangpu River is the heart of this great and historical city. It suits families, tourists and lovers alike.

We went on Chinese New Year. The usual billion people crowd was now 5 billion. However, you could sneak a good peak in here and there, but then you can't move after that, so just leave.

I love the bund in Shanghai. You should go to one of the rooftop bars on the western bank before it gets dark and experience The Bund in both daylight and evening. The Rosevelt Bar is a good spot. It seems, however, that the lights...More

A must visit to see the Shanghai skyline. It can get foggy often so be prepared to see 1/2 a skyline. There are plenty of dining in all the auxiliary roads or hotels.

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

Hi! I have a 5 hour layover in PVG (Shanghai Airport) from 1845-0000 and was wondering if i could make it here and how? And also would it be dangerous walking/traveling around so late? Would you recommend to just stay at the airport? Thanks for your thoughts!

5 hours? Yes it would take 1 hour 20-30 mins to get there by the subway and about 5 to 6 rmb, and you will spend an hour or 2, its just the Bund you want to see.

Are there any good budget accommodation (read 3 star) hotels available in the bund area? The ones I came across online are quite expensive. I would prefer the range within $50. The lower the cost the better but has to be clean. Is it a good area to stay for a tourist.

Bund is a high class area. Big companies have their office, banks are located in this area. The location wint hv such cheap price hotel. Try for hotels which are 2 to 3 kms away from the area, they might fit your budget.

Sorry not sure, but Shanghai is pretty expensive - think London in terms of prices so $50 may be a challenge.
