The picture of this waterfront is what immediately tells you that it is Shanghai city which is being referred to. Situated on the west bank of Huangpu River, this place offers a mesmerizing view of skyscrapers in the backdrop. The most interesting fact about this view is that the buildings have been made in different architectural styles, ranging from Gothic to Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism and the Renaissance. Owing to this diversity, the place is also referred to as the 'museum of international architecture'. Several prominent sculptures dot this area; at the Nanjing Road intersection stands the bronze statue of China’s first Communist mayor, Chen Yi. Some others were erected as monuments for war heroes.
If you are fascinated by lights, then visiting The Bund after the sunset is a great idea. Across the river stand the buildings with flashing lights, while the river reflects the colorful illuminations. In 2009, night view of The Bund was ranked amongst the 'Shanghai Top Ten Night Light Views'. You can also enjoy a ride through the Sightseeing Tunnel. As this place is centrally located, reaching here is not a hassle. You can choose to hop on the various buses going that way or take the ferry or the subway. All the options are equally feasible.
