The riverside walk along the Bund may be busy and crowded during the day, but with good reason - it's simply a must when in Shanghai for people-watching and getting a good feel for the city.

Was OK during the day and best to do at night for good photos. Bit of a walk to get to it so you need to be committed to go

Easiest access is near Super Brand Mall and Luijazui metro station on line 2. The area is much less crowded than the Bund and there are still places to eat and drink or just sit and watch the world go by. You can also take a ferry across the river although it's quite a long walk to anywhere on the... More

If the weather is right, this is a very nice place for a walk, pictures and perhaps some romance. The downtown Shanghai skyline is beautiful, with Pearl Tower up front. The river traffic is quite exotic, with barges going empty downstream and full upstream.

This Promenade is a must in Shanghai. It will simply pull a Waow from you not because of the enjoyable stroll (if you have nice weather) but because of what lays on the other side of the river: The Shanghai World Financial Center Skyline. Not only by Daylight but especially at NIGHT. It is not without reminding Hong Kong skyline... More

Walking along the river, especially in the evening when the lights of the wonderful hotels on the other side are turned on is a wonderful experience. The view of the other side of the river of the magnificent hotels, and the icon of Shanghai - the big ball with a wonderful restaurant and it´s constant changing of colors from red,... More

We walked along the Riverside Promenade at night time with all the building lights glazing out from the sky and the boats with their lantern lights. Very easy to walk around the promenade but does get crowded in this big city of 25 million people.

We enjoyed a number of leisurely strolls along the whole river promenade both daytime and at night. The panoramas are wonderful. On one side is the Bund with its fine architecture. But the chief attraction is the great river and the skyline across in Pudong. At all times the river is busy with ferries, laden barges and other commercial shipping.... 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.
