    It is wonderful landscape of Shanghai. It is the best place I have ever seen. You can see Pudong landscape from here and can take lots of photos. I got taken photo here and by wechat I added it

    Go to the Bund Strip and take a walk at the river side during the blue hour to enjoy the breathtaking lightning scenery on the Pudong side and the famous Shanghai Skyline!

    Better come at night to see lighting of building across the river so beautiful and too good to be true. I can spend almost 3 hours just stair at the view. Breath taking view from Shanghai.

    You can see Pudong District and take great photos of Shanghai's awesome skyline: futuristics skyscrapers. Across the street there are a lot of historical buildings with european's architecture.

    You can't missed it in Shanghai. If you want a quieter place you can walk along the promenade after the restaurant in the Yacht club and if you go there in a weekday in the morning the place is yours

    Best place in Shanghai!!! Greatest view, especially in the evening. Suggest to start walking from People's square via Nanging Road and then take a walk in bund.

    Amazing views. Most of the lights shut off at 10pm, so come at dusk to give yourself plenty of time to take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the views.

    Incredibly beautiful view in between the high rise and old european architecture. A must visit place. The lights during night at those Pudong's highrise building were so beautiful!

    Must see for every tourists in Shanghai. You'd better avoid it for New year's eve and climb on the rooftops if you don't wanna be caught in a stampede

    Make sure to go on a clear night! The building lights are beautiful. Even some boats are in bright LED lights as well. The lights turn off exactly at 10pm. Not a second later.

    What a beautiful seeing. Many wedding couples take wedding photos there. And, we felt the power of a past age and current China country. Must visit in your life.

    If the Bund boardwalk is packed around Chenyi square (at the end of Nanjing Road), walk a bit North or South and the big crowds will disappear quickly.

    Take a stroll along the waterfront and gaze onto the dazzling lights & heights of Shanghai. The iconic Pearl TV Tower doesn't light up until just after sunset so be patient for the night view.

    The symbol of Shanghai ! Go there before 10:00 pm cause they turn the harbor lights off after. And don't forget to take postcard pictures !

    View from the Pudong side is spectacular. Plan ahead to walk after your visit as finding an available cab amongst the throng of people is near impossible.

    It's beautiful at night, but the best experience is early in the morning! Catch the residents flying kites, playing musical instruments and on their morning walks - sometimes backwards!

    The view by night and by day are equally interesting experience. Be sure to come in between 7pm and 11pm for the light show on Pudong's buildings.

    Scenic view to the skyline of modern China. The best time is to go here just before the sunset (about 6pm in summer).

    Take a look at "rich China". The real one is at Beijing's back streets. World's 2nd, China's 1st tallest building, pearl shaped tower and bottle opener shaped tower will be at your sight.

    The view is pretty good, make sure you snap some pictures!. The bad thing: we had to wait in the line for 1.5 hours (no kidding), avoid the weekends and come another day that is not so crowded.
