Two stars I give for the big shopping malls alongside this road, which are truly impressive. But don't expect normal Chinese prices here, even the food is overpriced in this area. The street itself is totally overcrowded, packed with tourists and has no Chinese flair...More

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
