Stroll The Dazzling Bund
A trip to Shanghai isn’t complete without a visit to the cities most impressive sight, the Bund. The 1km promenade is sandwiched in between a stretch of grand landmark Art Deco and neo-classical buildings on the west side, including banks, hotels and trading centres, and the futuristic Pudong skyline which is set on the opposite bank of the Huangpu River. From here you get a great view of the famous Shanghai World Financial Centre, which changes colour depending on what time of day you visit, and the Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest building. The view really is spectacular, day or night this makes a fantastic spot to photograph the modern skyline, and to stroll a small length of the river. It’s free to visit and it’s possible to arrange boat tours, a trip on the river tunnel and the Bund History Museum nearby. Closest tube stop is Nanjing East Road.
