#tripaway without any doubts, this is my favorite spot in all Shanghai! The bund! The Bund or Waitan is a waterfront area and a protected historical district 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 in the eastern part of Huangpu District #shanghai #china #asia #architecture
over the streets of the bustling city of Shanghai! Seeing the sun rising over the skyline of the bund was priceless, and something I would recommend to anyone visiting this city. you can simply enter “The Bund Shanghai” into your GPS to find a nice riverside walk with the view of the skyscrapers, including the “Oriental Pearl”, which was the tallest tower in China by the time it was built (in the mid 90’s to mid 2000’s). But Shanghai has much more to offer than that - you can find plenty of amazing rooftop bars, great restaurants and places to brunch at, wether if you are looking for Chinese food or western, as well as a great shopping scene and if you are looking for culture, the city is surrounded by numerous water towns that are only a 30 min to an hour ride away with the bullet train.

The Bund will 100% provide you with Instagram worthy photos. Both sides of the river have an amazing view and are totally different. The walk along the boardwalk is nice even in mild temperatures. Highly recommend going there after dusk when the lights come on. #wintergetaway
The Bund is a must visit when you are in Shanghai. Crowded would make you feel you are in the biggest city of China. 🕶👡
The most beautiful time is around 6pm. You can't miss the sunrise and night view of the bund!! If you prefer day view, recommend 8 am. That would be quiet and relaxed.💍🧢
Arguably Shanghai's most-famous tourist attraction, the Bund is a waterfront promenade and famous business district in central Shanghai. Historically, the Bund was the city’s main financial and trading center, and was located within the Shanghai International Settlement, an area under nominal British control between 1843 and 1941. The walking areas extend roughly 1.6 km along the west bank of the Huangpu River. Owing to its historic status and zoning restrictions, the Bund contains fantastic examples of classic Shanghai architecture. For this reason, it is a popular spot for photography, offering the best views across the river to Shanghai’s modern skyline in Lujiazui. No visit to Shanghai would be complete without a visit to the Bund.
