The Bund (Waitan) 

The Bund is a financial hub and birthplace of Shanghai's modern history with many Western-style buildings. Foreign firms, banks, Customs House, consulates, foreign newspaper and parks all began on the Bund.

Since the 1990s, the Shanghai municipal government began rebuilding the Bingjiang District of the Bund. The Bund's original appearance was preserved and many new stylish buildings were built, such as the Heroes Monument, Chen Yi Square and musical fountain. From the Bund one can have a fantastic view of Pudong.



Lujiazui is the financial and trade zone of Shanghai. The tallest buildings in Shanghai – Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jin Mao Building and Shanghai World Financial Center – are all situated here. The top floors of these buildings offer visitors panoramic views of Shanghai.

The 88th floor of the Jin Mao Building houses a 1,520-square-meter indoor observation deck and the highest post office in China. The observation deck on the 100th floor of Shanghai World Financial Centre is 474 meters above ground.
