Cirque Le soir has events most evenings. There is a cover charge - but well worth it. It might be strange at first but the staff (dancers) create a beautiful and festive 'vibe' and seemed to interact a lot with the patrons (mere mortals)! I...More

We got in at 11pm with almost no people at first but its after midnight that the ambience and atmosphere started to improve. There were a few acts acc to the circus theme. Overall a decent place and worth checking out.

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
