The Bund is the only place in Shanghai you should not miss. Try to go there in the night time when all the buildings both on the Bund side and on the Pudong side are illuminated. Presently, as the city of Shanghai is saving on electricity, the best time to go is early friday or saturday evenings before 21:00. At other times the buildings are only partly lit.

The Bund is a living museum of Shanghai's colonial past. Foreign buildings of 20th-century are well protected.
