Stunning views of Pudong from the Bund Wai Tan, Shanghai, China
One of the most famous views of Shanghai is found at the Bund (Wai Tan), a waterfront area along the western bank of the Huangpu River.
Initially, the Bund was a British settlement. Found on the Bund are many historical buildings which at a time housed many banks and trading houses of international countries including the United Kingdom, France, the United States, and Italy.
The Bund is very popular with tourists who come here to walk along the riverfront that faces the many modern skyscrapers across the river in Lujiazui in the Pudong District.
Dominating the skyline are the Shanghai Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower, and Oriental Pearl Tower.

The Bund (Wai Tan) in Shanghai, China
The Bund (Wai Tan) in Shanghai, China
The Bund or Waitan is a waterfront area in central Shanghai. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The area along the river faces the modern skyscrapers of Lujiazui in the Pudong District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai. Building heights are restricted in the area.
Why is the Bund so famous?
Coming to Shanghai and missing the Bund is like visiting Beijing and bypassing the Forbidden City or the Great Wall. The Bund is the iconic landmark of Shanghai and the area around the Bund is the tourist center of Shanghai and is the city’s most famous mile.
What impress travelers most should be the 52 buildings with various international architectural styles which makes the Bund “An Exhibition of International Buildings”. There is no doubt that the Bund is the fusion of Western and Chinese Culture, an epitome of Shanghai’s history, and a great place to explore Shanghai’s today and see the future of Shanghai.
The word bund means an embankment or an embanked quay. The word comes from the Persian word band, through Hindustani, meaning an embankment, levee or dam.
There are numerous sites in India, China, and Japan that are called bunds (e.g., the Yokohama Bund). However, The Bund, without qualification to location, usually refers to this stretch of embanked riverfront in Shanghai.
The Chinese name for the Bund is unrelated in meaning: it means literally the outer bank, referring to the Huangpu River, because this part of the riverfront was located farther downstream than the inner bank area adjacent to the old walled city of Shanghai.
History of Shanghai Bund
The name “Bund” in Anglo-Indian term means “the embankment of a muddy waterfront”. To know Shanghai, you must come to Shanghai Bund. Before the 1840s, Shanghai was a small seaside town and the Bund was once a muddy towpath for boats along Huangpu River. After First Opium War in 1842, Shanghai began to be an open port and later the Bund was the first settlement of Great Britain. Many foreign powers entered Shanghai and erected their distinct Western-style banks and trading houses from the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Italy, Russia, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as the consulates of Russia and Britain, etc. In the later of 19th Century and 20th Century, Shanghai grew into Asia’s leading city, a cosmopolitan and thriving commercial and financial center. Known as “Oriental Wall Street”, the Bund was a historical miniature of colonial-era Shanghai.
Recommended Visiting Route
Travelers could visit the Bund either from north to south or from south to north. It is recommended to walk along the Bund which takes 1-2 hours.
At the northern end of the Bund, on the north bank of Suzhou Creek, rises the brick pile of Broadway Mansions, Russian Consulates, Astor House Hotel. Head south over Waibaidu Bridge and turn west to walk along Suzhou Creek until you reach the area known as the Back Bund. You won’t miss the Union Church which dates to 1885. Behind the church, you can catch a glimpse of the Former British Consulate and gardens, the first foreign building to go up in Shanghai. Follow to a row of beautiful old buildings, beginning with the Gothamesque China Baptist Publication Building. Turn left on Beijing East Road and head back towards to the Bund waterfront. Then, head down Zhongshan East Road to see Jardine Matheson, Bank of China, and Peace Hotel. Reach Promenade to catch good view of the Pudong skyline. Continue to head down to see North China Daily News, Customs House, Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, Shanghai Club, etc. Just across the street is the 49 meter tall Meteorogical Signal Tower, originally built in 1908 opposite the French Consulate. Later, you’ll reach Yan’an Road which marks the end of the walk.
Exploring the Bund in the daytime is quite different from that in the evening. From very early in the morning, before tourists gather here, local Shanghai people come to the riverbank to enjoy walking, jogging, doing exercises and flying kites.

#SHANGHAI #WAITAN #POV
外滩是上海租界区也是整个上海近代城市开发的起点。在1843年以前，这里还是黄浦江边的一片泥滩“黄浦滩”。黄浦滩位于县城附近及以北的一段称为“外滩”，以南（习惯以陆家浜为界）则为“里滩”。1844年起外黄浦滩北段一带被划为英国租界，英国人使用这块地区作为码头，不久这里开设了最早的一批洋行，其中最有实力的是英资公司怡和洋行（Jardine Matheson & Co.，外滩27号）、宝顺洋行（Dent & Co.，外滩14号）、老沙逊洋行（David Sasson and Sons Company，外滩24号），以及美资的旗昌洋行（Russell & Co.，外滩9号）。1848年在这里铺筑了马路和加固了江岸。而这条马路的名称是“Bund”，来源于印地语，在英语里是“堤岸”、“有堤岸的港埠”的意思，此名称至今仍是外滩在多数语言中的称呼。外黄浦滩的南段则划入法租界建造“法兰西外滩”码头区。1865年，外滩装上了煤气路灯并在后来的1882年更新为了弧光灯。1883年，上海第一条电话线路从外滩正丰街（今广东路）铺设至十六铺。

Shanghai Bund Info:
The Bund or Waitan (Chinese: 外滩, literally: 'Outer Beach') is a waterfront area in central Shanghai. The area centres on a section of Zhongshan Road (East No.1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The area along the river faces the modern skyscrapers of Lujiazui in the Pudong District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. From the 1860s to the 1930s, it was the rich and powerful centre of the foreign establishment in Shanghai, operating as a legally protected treaty port.
The Shanghai Bund has dozens of historical buildings, lining the Huangpu River, that once housed numerous banks and trading houses from the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Italy, Russia, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, and Belgium, as well as the consulates of Russia and Britain, a newspaper, the Shanghai Club and the Masonic Club. The Bund lies north of the old, walled city of Shanghai. It was initially a British settlement; later the British and American settlements were combined in the International Settlement. Magnificent commercial buildings in the Beaux Arts style sprang up in the years around the turn of the 20th century as the Bund developed into a major financial centre of east Asia. Directly to the south, and just northeast of the old walled city, the former French Bund (the quai de France, part of the Shanghai French Concession) was of comparable size to the Bund but functioned more as a working harbourside.
By the 1940s, the Bund housed the headquarters of many, if not most, of the major financial institutions operating in China, including the big four national banks in the Republic of China era. However, with the Communist victory in the Chinese civil war, many of the financial institutions were moved out gradually in the 1950s, and the hotels and clubs closed or converted to other uses. The statues of colonial figures and foreign worthies which had dotted the riverside were also removed.
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, with the thawing of economic policy in the People's Republic of China, buildings on the Bund were gradually returned to their former uses. Government institutions were moved out in favour of financial institutions, while hotels resumed trading as such. Also during this period, a series of floods caused by typhoons motivated the municipal government to construct a tall levee along the riverfront, with the result that the embankment now stands some 10 metres higher than street level. In the 1990s, Zhongshan Road (named after Sun Yat-sen), the road on which the Bund is centred, was widened to ten lanes. As a result, most of the parkland which had existed along the road disappeared. Also in this period, the ferry wharves connecting the Bund and Pudong, which had served the area's original purpose, were removed. A number of pleasure cruises still operate from some nearby wharves.
In the 1990s, the Shanghai government attempted to promote an extended concept of the Bund to boost tourism, and land value in nearby areas, as well as to reconcile the promotion of colonial relics with the Socialist ideology. In its expanded form, the term Bund (as New Bund or Northern Bund) was used to refer to areas south of the Yan'an Road, and a stretch of riverfront north of the Suzhou River (Zhabei). Such use of the term, however, remains rare outside of tourism literature.

China Travel Tour- Shanghai - Night of the Bund Former British Settlement weekday Best night view 4K
It is a romantic night, the wet floor just reflected the splendid light during the night, unfortunately, the Garden bridge is receiving renovation so the view is not perfect, hope you enjoy it.
Shanghai is in far east Asia, most of the buildings at the Bund was built by former British and French settlers, it is European style, but you can still observe some of the Chinese elements in those buildings, very interesting, worth wasting time to explore.
