More information

The Bund is a section of riverfront along the Huangpu River in Shanghai which until the early 1800s was undeveloped. The British set up their consulate and other buildings there after the Opium War. In the early 1900s the Bund sprouted up with buildings designed by architects from foreign countries. The most famous and attractive sight which is at the west side of the Bund are the 52 various buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism and the Renaissance. Many of these buildings were the best in Asia for that time. Most of them are bank buildings. The others are commercial buildings, national organizations, restaurants, clubs, press etc.
People have made the best advantage of the fine architecture as a contribution for Shanghai showing herself in the international society.
The Bund has turned into the centre of international finance as well as the touring resort.
