The Bund in Shanghai is an area that stretches one mile along the bank of the Huangpu River. It has fantastic views of the city skyscrapers and towers on the opposite bank. The river itself is busy with cargo boats and cruise liners along with local work boats and pleasure craft moving all the time.
We were sick for the first few days in Shanghai and consequently got to visit The Bund in the daytime but failed to do a night visit to see the lights. On the day we made the trip to town we got off the train at Peoples Square. Walked around town before finding our way to the waterfront and The Bund.
As with all other Chinese cities it was crowded, mainly with Chinese. :-). We stood out from the crowd as being the only “foreigners”. However it certainly is an awe inspiring place and gives an understanding of how this modern city has grown.
