  • being at this place can give you enough energy for spending your ongoing month. walking through river and watching sky scraper and light and ferry boats can give you good feelings. you can buy tickets there for take ferry boats and feel the smooth wind touch your skin. It is better to try it.
  • If you are in Shanghai or planning to visit it, check into your hotel and head straight to the BUND. The views are amazing, the river amidst the building looks so cool and majestic. The ferry ride at night with all the buildings slowly starting to glow - is the perfect sight. Try taking the ferry just before sunset so that the buildings start to glow during your one hour ride and you get to see some breathtaking views. The look of Oriental towers and other tall buildings in the financial center of Shanghai will surely blow you away! Loved it!!
  • I love the Bund! It’s such a great location to chill and do some serious people watching including the photo shots of the many couples recently married. The views are amazing and well worth some time if you are in Shanghai. It’s only a couple of miles long but you get to see a whole lot when you walk it.
  • Go there for the lights in the evening. I don't know why they shut them off so early though. The city planners in Shanghai have gone a great job to create so many interesting angles from which to view the architecture of the city. The Bund itself is best viewed from the buildings on the other side of the river.
  • The iconic waterfront of Shanghai. It’s a beautiful place to take a stroll along the river and soak in the iconic views of the city. The city planners have done a wonderful job at transforming the waterfront with colorful gardens, scenic benches, and continuous walking path alongside the river.
