the nice experience is to visit both sides of the Bund to see the different views. From one side to the other you can take a metro for 2 stops : very easy.

Excellent view of the Shanghai city skyline. Was there in the evening for dinner at Hakkasan (Cantonese cuisine) for dinner. A very fine restaurant in the Bund.

This is a must see at night, the lights are spectacular. We actually took a short river cruise which is well worth it and paid extra to sit in the VIP room where you miss the crush of Chinese all trying to take photos.

The Bund was the waterfront foreign business district in Shanghai back when the colonial powers were nibbling away at the country. About two dozen of these old colonial era buildings from the late 19th/early 20th century still line the waterfront on one side of the...More

For sure a great place where to have a walk, especially by night, when the lights are on and the view gets simply amazing. You might think walking there after being at the Bund or the many lesser known zones in the sorroundings, and enjoy...More

The views are breathtaking. The skyline is really something see. I would recommend the cruise to everyone! The night cruise was spectacular. We also walked around during the day, a totally different scene..

You are looking at such modern unusual architecture- imaginatively lit at night and behind you are such classic European 19th century buildings. Loved the contrasts. A must see if in Shanghai.

The Bund is beautiful, especially at night. Lit up to rival Times square and downtown Tokyo. The stores also rival any Western City. The Luis Vuitton building is next to a huge mall and quite unique as is much of the architecture.

This is one of my favorite place in the world. Very well organise and full of restaurant and bars. It is not only view but also place to spend time.

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

It will be good if you have the address written down in Chinese language. Most of the Taxi driver can not read English letters. Worst case write down the telephone number from the hotel. They can call and ask for the street... More

The Bund does have nice restaurants. However, close to the people's square you will find a lot of restaurants. Best is to visit a few and then select one. If you like fish and seafood, some have fresh tanks so you can select... More
