Early morning walk on the Bund
Highly recommended that you take in a stroll on the Bund very early (say 7 am). There are many fitness geeks out and about doing all sorts of physical activities such as jogging, walking the dog and even a spot of kite flying. At the far end of this magnificient boulevard by the great river, there are crews of taichi exercise enthusiasts too. The air quality is not too good these days, making for some interesting outlooks with the dispersed light.
At 4AM, my study abroad friends and I set off for a biking adventure to the Bund from our Fudan University dorms. We biked across the city and saw the city wake up district by district. And we reached the Bund just in time to see the sunrise! The experience was unforgettable and the view was unreal.
A Sleepless Metropolis in Classic Tradition of Humankind
Shanghai is my second hometown. It is my favorite city in East Asia. I am fond of traveling at night along the long Bund and viewing the skyscrapers opposite. This is a happy time to me when complete a full-day job. I prefer to see the complexes of tall buildings with colorful show at night. Shanghai is a business city, but is not short of feeling of culture and leisure. And I always believe that the leisure is a suitability both of physics and mentality. This is not a good picture actually, taken in summer last year
