The Bund

The Bund has also been known as Zhongshan First East Road, which measures about 1.5 kilometers in length. It starts from Yanan East Road in the south and extends to Waibaidu Bridge on Suzhou Creek in the north. To its east is the Huangpu River. To its west are 52 classic buildings of Gothic and Baroque styles which used to house old Shanghai’s financial institutions and trading companies; therefore, the Bund is now acclaimed as an outdoor museum of international architecture. The Huangpu River is the largest river flowing through downtown Shanghai. It rises at Longwang Mountain Nature Reserve close to Anji, Zhejiang province. It experiences the ebb and flow of tides twice everyday, and the water levels could have a drop of up to 4 meters. Facing the Huangpu River, Shanghai’s mother river, the Bund has been a symbol of the city for over 100 years. It was not only witness to Shanghai’s legendary past, but also fully demonstrates to the world the city’s remarkable ability to absorb foreign cultures. The peaceful river, the long dyke and the green belt against the dazzling backdrop of charming buildings make the Bund Shanghai’s signature spot. In the morning, early birds come here for morning exercises. In daytime, it is a bustling attraction. In the evening, the buildings lit up along the Bund are like crystal palaces, ad visitors are amazed by unforgettable night vistas.

The Peninsula Shanghai

The Peninsula Hotel Shanghai is the only new building that has joined the ranks of the buildings on the Bund in the past 60 years. It affords enchanting views of the Huangpu River, the Bund, Pudong and the garden of the former British Consulate. Its interior décor is a throwback to the decadence of the “Oriental Paris” in the ‘20s and ‘30s. Its guestrooms and suites are among the most spacious in Shanghai; its restaurants and entertainment centers are where guests can unwind. The hotel is an ideal choice for both leisure and business travelers.
