The Bund (Wai Tan) is amazing . The picture of the skyline is one of the best in the world. The story of the BUND is very interesting too.

A boat ride at night is the best way to view the Bund. Get to the boats early as the crowds are massive.

Must do while in Shanghai allowing views of both new and old Shanghai. Went on a rather dreary, rainy day, but still impressive. There are some nice, well kept gardens if you are into that. Was interesting watching life go by on the busy river,...More

The Bund area is opposite the river from the "Shanghai skyline" buildings. There is a nice plaza area on the river at which you can get a great photo with the impressive Shanghai skyline in the background. But, the cool thing too is the neighborhood...More

Although the Bund per sec is nothing unusual and similiar to our riverbank of Singapore River, its cold air and brightly lit tall buildings with glittering colourful lights make the area looked very attractive. Even boats plying along the river were well decorated with very...More

Such an amazing free attraction! It is definitely the perfect place to admire the skyline across the river. What’s even more amazing than the view itself is the combination of the charm of the nostalgic architecture that remained and the modern skyscrapers. It is simply...More

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
