The famous waterfront also known as Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu, The Bund is situated on the west bank of the Huangpu River and stretches for almost a mile. With excellent examples of colonial architectural styles ranging from Romanesque to Gothic, and baroque to the renaissance, the wide walkways make for a spectacular walk.
Juxtaposed with the new high-rise business district of Pudong on the opposite shore of the river, a stroll along The Bund gives the best of both the history and future of this vibrant city. Along the path lies several sculptures showcasing significant figures of the city’s history as well as a number of art installations interspersed within the open parks and squares along the route.
Insider’s Tip: One of the best ways to see The Bund is from water level on one of the Huangpu River Cruises. A cruise at night is especially serene with the period lamp posts on the west contrasting with the flashing lights to the east!
Located a few blocks from the river front, the Yuyuan Gardens are a paradise away from the hustle and bustle of this fast-paced city. This classical Chinese garden was completed in 1577 during the Ming Dynasty, and with six main areas within, the gardens cover around five acres.
Containing pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds, and cloisters, each area has several scenic places to rest and contemplate, often to the sound of a babbling stream. The large canopied trees offer welcome shade through the hotter months and in such a busy and industrious city, this slice of peace and quiet offers a fantastic respite in the middle of the day.
Shanghai Circus World
China as a whole is world renowned for its talented acrobats, and Shanghai, in particular, is host to “China’s Number 1 Circus World”. Located to the north of the city centre on the metro line, the building is unmistakable with its distinctive golden architecture.
The production, ERA – Intersection of Time, is a multimedia theatrical spectacular that has been running continuously since 2005. With showmanship that has been compared to the West End, the performance includes acrobatics, martial arts, and dance, telling the story of the country from its ancient past to the future in a 90 minute sensation to the senses.

The skyscrapers of the Pudong District offer a unique perspective of China’s most sophisticated city from a number of different vantage points.
The Shanghai World Financial Centre is a 492 metre tall structure with a distinct design allowing for multiple viewing platforms. The Sky Arena on the 94th Floor offers eight metre high windows to survey the modern and old city below from the comfort of their lounge area, while the Sky Walk on the 97th Floor features a glass roof and a sense openness that is not for the faint of heart. The 100th Floor is the final observation deck and is for those wanting to experience terror. With glass floors exhibiting the dizzying drop below, this was the highest observation deck in the world for a number of years!
Standing like a beacon above all others, the Shanghai Tower stands at 632 metres tall, the second tallest building in the world. Although not as tall as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, it does boast to have the world’s highest observation deck on the 118th Floor. Offering 360 degree views across the entire city, the elevators have you reaching speeds of 18m/s, taking under a minute to reach the top!
Insider’s Tip: The observation deck of the Shanghai Tower was opened to the public quietly in July 2016 and during the week often has smaller queues for tickets than the Shanghai World Financial Centre!
