The Bund is a popular waterfront spot in Shanghai. Since I was staying at the Sofitel Hotel in Shanghai I was able to simply walk about twenty minutes from the front steps of the hotel down to the Bund. The area around the Bund is bustling with activity and there appears to be plenty of things to do on both sides of the water. I would definitely recommend that you take a walk along the Bund at night as the view is incredible. If you are visiting Shanghai then make sure you take some time to view the incredible architecture and Shanghai skyline at the Bund.
Here is a picture of the Oriental Pearl Tower during the day. It is located in the Pudong district, so on the other side of the river across from the Bund. It was personally my favorite building among the selection of skyscrapers and architecture in Shanghai.
