  • This is a great place, you can feel the modern magic city. The Huangpu rive divided Shanghai into two parts and goes into the sea.

  • Amazing Architecture on the Shanghai side, great view across the Huangpu river. So much to do around here and if the weather is not too hot or cold you can walk for hours.

  • A great place for a walk. You can admire the modern architecture of the city. One of the most recognizable places in Shanghai. Beautiful views. Especially the views at night are very impressive. You can also take the ferry for a small amount of money. It is worth it.
  • Best time to see is night which gives amazing view of the skyscraper and lighting. Also walking around area gives mind relaxed by seeing the lighting
  • Great place and gram worthy! This was taken during our visit to Shanghai in 2019, pre-pandemic. Try the river cruise at night for that awesome shot!
  • The Bund or Waitan (Chinese: 外滩; Wàitān, literally: "Outer Beach") is a waterfront area in central Shanghai. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River. Posted the photographs I captured during my travel. Panoramic view of skyscrapers from The Bund, Shanghai 🇨🇳 There is something in Shanghai that is very exciting and alive - the idea of a city with two different souls, one from today and another from a long time ago, is amazing.
  • The Bund is a waterfront area of Huangpu River, and the center area of Zhongshan Road, the historical district in Central Shanghai. Walking around the bund and looking at the grand and western style building, I feel like in Europe, not in China :). All the buildings at the Bund was built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Day and night are always the best to enjoy the Bund, walking along the promenade to enjoy the view from both sides, the Pudong area with all the tall skyscrapers, and the Puxi area with all its historical landmarks. Most of the buildings and landmarks in the Bund start to turn on the light from 6.30 pm, to 10.30 pm, including the light show. The Bund has been featured in many Asian and Western movies, including the TV series The Amazing Race.
