  • The first light on the beach in Shanghai, is attracted by the beautiful night scene, where you can see the two shore of the river Building and night, to Shanghai must come to look.

  • One of best places to enjoy shanghai. You can see oriental pearl tower and shanghai tower from here. In the night this place is very crowded but very beautiful
  • Beautiful area with amazing night view of Shanghai downtown! Even though it was a chilly winter evening, the Bund was packed with tourists and locals. The night view across the river, and the buildings on the same side were just gorgeous with the lighting. A good walkway along the river after dinner. Don't ever dare to skip this attraction if you are in Shanghai!
  • Seeing this place from across the river looks amazing. We took a ferry over and just did our own thing. It looks awesome at night and there are a ton of people.
  • You'll need some patience when you're here, especially if you're faced with large amounts of tours - but once that's sorted out, this is absolutely scenic, and you're able to see Shanghai for what it's known for - that night view.
  • GOOD PLACE FOR TRIP!!! I really enjoyed it at night because its more beautiful! i suggest you to bring dslr or any proffesional cameras because theres many beautiful objects at there

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.
