The Bund City Sculptures, Shanghai

4.6
Dozens of scultpures, monuments, and memorials make The Bund City Sculptures which stretches for 1.5 km (0.93 mi) along Shanghai's waterfront. Styles range include Classical, Romanesque, Baroque, Gothic, and contemporary, and at night, thousands of lights dramatically illuminate the surrounding buildings, lending the sculptures a magical and futuristic feeling. Statues and monuments tell different stories from the city's history: the concrete-tower Monument to the People's Heroes memorializes Chinese revolutionaries dating back to the Opium Wars, while the British Red Rock Monument reminds the city who emerged as victor of those battles. To plan Shanghai vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

    The lighting on both sides of the river - the "old" with the banks, as well as the "new" with the banks of 8) - has been their very own charm

    It is a very nice view to see in the evening. You can walk along the Bund to see all of the buildings lit up which is a very view.  more »

    Very nice ride along the River, especially in the evening when they illuminate the buildings in the area. On one side are all the buildings on the other side of the River, modern skyscrapers and classic.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
