The lights are amazing at night with the buildings around both sides of the Bund offering lights shows. Added to this are the tour boats going up and down on the river, some with awesome light effects.
Large crowds of people congregate along the promenade and at night newly married couples take advantage of the beautiful, colourful, backgrounds for their wedding pictures. A MUST SEE

Take an afternoon stroll and enjoy the sights. The buildings all light up at 6pm so its worth staying till then and walking back as the buildings come a live on both sides of the river.

This is the number 1 place to visit when u are in Shanghai. The view is amazing at night, but also good in the morning at sunrise.

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.
