The Bund City Sculptures, Shanghai

#22 of 195 in Sightseeing in Shanghai
Monument Landmark
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.

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.
