Aptly given the name Museum of Buildings, The Bund beautifully juxtaposes a bustling metropolis against century-old history, uniting old aesthetics with modern structures and forming an identity that is defined by the past as well as present and future revolutions.
The best way to really appreciate the architectural complexities of all of its iconic landmarks is to roam around The Bund by foot freely and although it is perfectly fine to begin wherever, most start their route from the Broadway Mansions all the way to the Meteorological Signal Tower.
Not only is The Bund a marvel for travellers, its geographical location carries rich cultural nuances through pivotal economic activities that have taken place over centuries with influence by endless foreign powers as Shanghai gradually developed into one of Asia’s fastest-growing cities.
Watch as the early risers exercise and fly kites when the sun rises, explore and admire the splendid architecture of its buildings during daytime, board a relaxing Huangpu River Cruise to enjoy the views by boat and finally, bask in the illuminated panoramic skyline by night time.
