    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    What a picturesque view. Beautiful day or night. The banks across the street have some incredible architecture, as well. Definitely a must-see when in Shanghai.

    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!

    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.
  • Simple Discoveries
    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.
  • Soroush 苏.
    You haven't been or lived in Shanghai if you haven't visited this spot! Must see, especially at night.

    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.
  • Tevfik Denizhan M.
    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 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 !

    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.

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

    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 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.

    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.

    THE must in Shanghai! One tidbit: you are observed by police all the time. A bit scary. Minority report became reality!
