Whenever I am at the Bund, I am truly amazed at the rapid progress in Shanghai. Ultra-modern high rise buildings on the Pudong side and beautifully preserved building colonial buildings on the Puxi side. Its a good walk from end to end on a cooler...More

No need to book. Best time depends on weather, whether there is visibility or not and if you like day or night. Night is magic in Shanghai but you don't need to be high to enjoy the night skyline.
