外滩 The Bund and 南京路步行街 Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street @ 上海 Shanghai, China

IMG_0609IMG_0690To make our 上海 Shanghai trip complete, we visited 外滩 The Bund both during the day and night over two days 🙂

The Bund is stretch of waterfront promenade along 黄浦江 Huangpu River. Overlooking the river is a stretch of modern skyscrapers, including the iconic 东方明珠塔 Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Behind it are dozens of historical buildings. We loved the contrast!

A pity it was raining when we went during the day, hence we did not stay for the sunset.

We returned the following night to enjoy the lovely night view 🙂


Just a short walk away from 外滩 The Bund, 南京路步行街 Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street is the paradise for shoppers. For us, we enjoyed the beautiful architecture 🙂
