One of the first places every tourist visiting Shanghai goes to is the Bund. The Bund is a famous waterfront area in Shanghai, and runs along the west bank of the Huangpu river. While walking along the Bund you will be facing the beautiful skyscrapers on the other side of the river; the Pudong side of the city. Along the Bund you will also find famous buildings, historical and in different architectural styles. A must-see if you are in the city!
It is also only a 5 minute walk away from one of the biggest shopping streets in the city; East Nanjing Road. And there is an underwater tunnel if you want to get closer to the tall skyscrapers on the Pudong side, or visit one of the many big shopping malls. There are also many extremely popular clubs and rooftop-bars, that is bustling with life at every hour of the day. If you would rather see more traditonal chinese architecture, the YuYuan Gardens are in walking distance from the Bund.
How to get there: the easiest way is to take the metro. Avoid the rush-hours if you like to keep your personal space intact 😉 The closest stop to the Bund is East Nanjing Road on line 2 (the green line), in the shopping district. If you want to start on the Pudong side, get off the metro at Lujiazui, also on line 2. You can also take on of the city seightseeing buses.
Have a lovely week my dear readers 🙂
