HD Bund walking tour


| May 15, 2020

The historic Bund, meaning 'outer bank', refers to the waterfront area behind the embankment on the west of the Huangpu river. Construction work is restricted in this area so many buildings retain their colonial features from its 1930s heyday when the city was occupied by European, American, and Japanese banks, trading houses, clubs consulates and hotels. These buildings have been restored and are spectacularly lit up at night. A range of luxury hotels are also located along the Bund with superb views and providing an ideal location for exploring the area.
