The Bund

The Bund holds many of the historic places of the area, including beautiful buildings and wharves. Many of its buildings are historical and have a long time span, from the late 19th century to the present.

They were once trading houses, banks, and offices of just about every major country, including Japan, Germany, Russia, the US, France, Britain and others. During the early 20th century, it became a major international financial center for East Asia.

The Bund housed financial institutions from all over the world and China as well. Today, The Bund Shanghai still plays host to major financial centers, hotels, international offices, and major national banks.

The Bund runs for approximately one mile and stretches along the riverbank of the Huangpu River. Crossing Suzhou Creek, the Bund goes from Waibaidu Bridge to Yan'an Road. It holds 52 buildings of both modern and Western classical styles.

This makes the Bund a major attraction in Shanghai. These architectural types come from many different sources, including Art Deco, Beaux-Arts, Neo-Classical, Baroque, Renaissance, Gothic, and the Romanesque period.

Come to the Bund if you want to see a variety of history within arm's reach, practically, all within the beauty of the Bund's architecture, from present-day to ancient history. Within the Bund Shanghai, elements of style, influence, culture and history merge.
