The Bund is the cultural section of Shanghai that best represents the blending of ancient and modern influences. This renowned waterfront district is the city's most famous landmark. The word Bund is of Anglo-Indian origin meaning 'embankment on the waterfront', and you'll experience the definition literally with a feeling of space and openness that you won't find anywhere else in Shanghai.
Your guided evening tour of Shanghai starts with an evening cruise on the Huangpu River, which divides the Bund into two sections, Pu Dong and Pu Xi, which mean 'east of river' and 'west of river' respectively. Local people honor the Huangpu as Mother River, and as you view the lights and spectacle from the deck of your evening cruise, you will understand why.
After the cruise, we will enjoy a walk along the Bund on our way to the historically famous Peace Hotel, which served as the center of Shanghai's nightlife in the 1920's and 30's. Then we will take a trolley tour to enjoy the magnificent night view of Nanjing Road.
