Bund International Architecture Exhibition, Shanghai

(700+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
