Well, crowed. But, not an issue the view was fantastic. No money spared on electronics here. Everything was lit up and constantly changing. I walked over from my hotel, ( The Grand Central Hotel, a maybe C grade hotel ) only a 10-15 min walk. The streets were packed with people so much so that the police had one side of the street for each direction of people walking. Got up to the railing and took several wonderful photos. Then took the tourist train under the river to the other side. Its called the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel. It was Okay but served it's purpose of getting me to the other side for a different view of the Bund. You are up close to the Pearl tower.
Anyhow, you cannot go to Shanghai and not see this view at night. FYI: At 10:00 PM the lights go dark. At least they do in March.

Love the view in the afternoon as well in the evening. Lots of people but not that crowded. Love the idea of saving old architectural buildings and enhance them with lights in the evening. Love the area so clean and not polluted.

Love the area in the morning especially at night. Love the weather in March. Clean area. Love the flowers and city. Old structures can be seen on the other side. Across the river taller bldgs can be seen. Beautiful lighting of the bldg can be seen during the night.

Very crowded, at all time.
Good to pay a visit and take some photos when you are first time to Shanghai.

If in Shanghai for the first time, I guess this is one that should be on your must do list. Day or night, it’s great as a picture spot.
