Ranked 1 of 22 sightseeing in Shanghai

A trip to Shanghai is not complete till one has visited the bund which has an impressive history. With very humble beginnings, the Bund (embankment of a muddy water front) used to be a trading spot during the Colonial era. It soon went on to become the turf where powerful banks and trading houses in the city operated. Today, it is the ultimate designer and restaurant hub with very modern and futuristic architecture.

An unbelievable experience, worth a visit

You can walk along the river in the historic British concession with thousands of other people, enjoying the beautiful sights and sounds. Nice place for a walk. Get's busy during the day but quiet towards the evening. Well recommend.

Stunning place

The Bund is the highlight of Shanghai. Especially during Evenings when everything is lit up, you can see the colonial Shanghai on one side and the New Shanghai on the opposite side. The cruise of the Bund is another must activity.

A nice place to shop and sightseeing

This is one of the major attraction of the Shanghai for shopping & sightseeing. Shopping on these roads is experience of a lifetime & views are breath taking. The main activities are small boat rides & visiting vintage buildings & new architecture.

Heaven in night

Nice to travel in ferry and to watch Bund Museum and shop in the east Nanging Road. And you can see the Tall buildings of Shanghai with fancy lighting. Nice clean streets and river. You also visit Qipu Street near by to shop readymade garments and children toys and dresses.
