The Bund (or Wai Tan) is one of the primary symbols of the international city of Shanghai. It lies along the waterfront of the busy Huangpu River, which is a branch of the Yangtze. Those visiting Shanghai should put the Bund on their to-do list. It is about 1.5 km long and centers on an area of Zhongshan Road, hosting an eclectic mix of architecture on its west side (Gothic, Roman, baroque, and Western). It once contained trading houses and consulates from all over the world. On the other side of the river, the many modern skyscrapers of the Pudong district serve as the skyline for countless memorable pictures. The colors of the night attract visitors from all over the world. The history of the Bund is a reminder of the many changes, both commercially and culturally, that have occurred in Shanghai over the years.
