Bund International Architecture Exhibition, Shanghai

(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
West of Huangpu River stands Bund International Architecture Exhibition, a vast architectural complex built in styles of Baroque and Eclecticism, which extends 1.5 km (0.9 mi). When the city opened its borders to the outside world in 1840, Europeans established new trade routes and constructed elegant office buildings here. Many architects were hired to design and build works of art, which in time became a symbol of the city's blend of cultures. You can visit and photograph some magnificent edifices here, such as the club building once used by the British residents, the building which belonged to the America Union Bank, or the eight-story building featuring a combination of modernism as well as Baroque and eclectic elements.

  • Shanghai can feel within Europe. It's close to the top in a time when it was difficult away from overseas travel from Shanghai to see the magnificent Western-style building was impressive but very much up for grabs, there isn't much in times like these ... Much-vaunted perch for watching the boat ride.

  • Great for night walks after a heavy dinner. Must visit as it is just opposite of the Bund. Good for photos and the buildings are beautiful.  more »
