The Bund

A hazy sunset at the Bund
Every traveler from far and wide has to make at least one trip down to The Bund while visiting Shanghai. It makes for great people watching and photo opportunities with a wonderful river view of Pudong and the wonderful architecture off of Nanjing Lu.

If you approach the Bund from Nanjing Lu, make a left down the street and try to find the metal bull that replicates charging bull of Wall Street!

If you look like a tourist from a far off place, be prepared to have Chinese tourists and locals approach you for a friendly photo op!

Tip: Skip the taxi cab ride and take the metro. The metro stop is near by, cheap, and there are stops written in English

Financial District at Night
Usually the Financial District of a city is quiet and dark at night, but not Shanghai. All the buildings are in glory lights facing the Huang Pu River. This is the Bund. The entire bund is a great walk at night - store, photo spots, food stands are along the bund. You can also take an audio tour under the tunnel to go to the opposite side.

On the Bund
Two weeks and Shanghai couldn't have been better. Walking along the Bund at night we felt safe and the energy was vibrant.
