Arguably Shanghai's most-famous tourist attraction, the Bund is a waterfront promenade and famous business district in central Shanghai. Historically, the Bund was the city’s main financial and trading center, and was located within the Shanghai International Settlement, an area under nominal British control between 1843 and 1941. The walking areas extend roughly 1.6 km along the west bank of the Huangpu River. Owing to its historic status and zoning restrictions, the Bund contains fantastic examples of classic Shanghai architecture. For this reason, it is a popular spot for photography, offering the best views across the river to Shanghai’s modern skyline in Lujiazui. No visit to Shanghai would be complete without a visit to the Bund.
Earlier in 2019 this I took a trip to Shanghai and visited the bund, and I remember that at that time of the year it was mind-blowing the number of people came and went on a typical day.
there would be crowd control officials and lots of barricades to ensure some form of order but it was still short of chaos! however this was the norm. the crowds also extended towards the nanjing street and many surrounding streets. and the worst thing you could do would be to try to take a taxi cause you might have gotten stuck on n traffic.
however it was always still a wonderful experience if you ask me as you could see how much people loved Shanghai cause Shanghai does have a lot to offer.
