One of the most popular tourist destinations in Shanghai, The Bund is a prominent waterfront area that runs along Zhongshan Road and is one of Asia’s most famous streets.
The road was originally used by Europeans, Americans and the Japanese, who constructed their banks, trading houses, hotels and consulates here.
Also referred to as the museum of buildings, the Bund is packed with majestic and unique structures that are worth a visit when you’re in Shanghai.
