7/43.- Shanghai, the Bund


The Bund is the area in Puxi on the banks of the Huangpu River, along Zhongshan Road. The term Bund is an Anglo-Indian word that describes a muddy waterfront.

The Bund is one of the most famous places throughout China. Along this promenade you can see several buildings from the first part of the 20th century. Most of the buildings have a clear European influence. They are the fingerprint of the colonial times, back in the 1930's, when Shanghai was the business center of pre-communist China.

And just opposite of the Bund you have the modern side of today's Shanghai, the financial district of Pudong, with its wonderful skyline.
