You cannot miss this place. The Bund is the waterfront zone of the Western City (Pu Xi)and it is amazing, especially by night.

You can see from here the buildings of both the old and new Shanghai. The TV Tower and the Jin Mao Tower (the second highest building in the world) are also beautiful from here. The entire East City is illuminated from sunset and the buildings in colorful lights are magical.

You can walk here on the riverbank or you can take a cruise. This latter is much more comfortable, although a little expensive.

One more thing: do not forget your camera and bring extra batteries as well.

Address:
Shanghai, China

Price:
The cruise costs about RM100 (approx. $13) per person.
