Modern, electric street filled with shops, eateries, and lovely restaurants tucked away up above the street level. Some can be tricky to find but are worth the effort.

I guess is a place to visit but to go shopping, I don't think so! is dirty and crowded... People are digging in the trash to get the plastic bottles...I felt bad for them and at the same time is not very nice to see this happening next to sooooo expensive shops.... too much of a difference in the ambience...sad

A pedestrian road where you can get the vibe of the Chinese culture. Malls, shopping stores and eateries are widely available along this road. The road is a few minutes walking distance away from The Bund. Tramp is available at a really cheap price if you are too tired to walk from one end to the other.

A street partially closed off to cars full of all types of shops and restaurants. Stores including Uniqlo, H&M & Forever 21 etc. as well as other brands. Restaurants and fast food chains. There is even a small tram if you don't want to walk.

Famous long road and pedestrian walk in Shanghai which lots of shops and restaurants. There are even mini trains which can transport passengers from one side of Nanjing Road to the other side. Well worth a visit if you haven't been especially to experience the atmosphere on a weekend.

Very touristy area. A must see. A lot of stores, top brand names, and very lively at night. Food options are pretty good too. Purchased some beautiful silk scarves for only 29 RMB - the ladies loved them! Beware of scammers - and beware of solicitors for a "massage". Just say no and keep walking.

The place is beautiful in the day and colorful at night . There are a lot of american and big brand shops . There are also fruit and ice cream shops but expensive . You must be cautious of people selling watches and sticking to you until you buy or shout at them to leave you .

One of Shanghai's main attractions and one of the most touristy places in the city. It's worth seeing once. You'll probably be in the vicinity sooner or later, anyway (e.g. People's square, The Bund). Depending on where you're from, the broad pedestrian street with it's tall malls and stores can be very impressive and it's a great view in the... More

A relatively long shopping street. It is full of stores of every type. The street signs are cool to see at night and it brings a fair amount of Chinese and foreign tourists. There are many hard sales people that will approach you, especially if you walk alone - massage, fake Rolex, and so on. It can be a bit... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
