  • This is one of the best places to visit in Shanghai. It's close to the water and there are walls along the Bund that double as planters for beautiful, live plants. I went here several times while I was I Shanghai and really enjoyed myself. The one hang-up I have is that it could definitely be cleaner. However, that shouldn't stop anyone from going for the experience.
  • The place to see and be seen in Shanghai - lots of photo opportunities, selfies, etc. You can't see the flashy financial distract across the river. Try to not look IN the river. You know how's you can't drink from the faucet? The water in the river looks way worse. Sigh. Anyway, fascinating area - Lots to see and photograph. Handicapped accessible, but takes a bit of doing to find ramps - otherwise lots of steps. Wish now I'd been more prepared to know what I was looking at, but going to be in area several more times before leaving Shanghai. Must do in Shanghai.
  • This is a must visit spot for all tourist who visits Shanghai. You get a superb view of the most prosperous part of Shanghai, Lujiazui. And it's a very nice stroll anytime in the day or during the night.
  • A place where you can take a photo in city of Shanghai... Nice place to go at night to take a photo of THE CITY. The lights in the city at night. Is very alluring...
  • Great spot! Amazing. Take the water bus ride. Again amazing!
