Attractions
The Bund (Waitan, Chinese: 外滩)

The symbol of old and new Shanghai, the Bund (officially known as Zhongshan Road) is Shanghai's most famous landmark. The 'Bund' comes from an Anglo Indian term meaning the muddy embankment on the waterfront, and it is the Huangpu River which helps to create the colonial feel here and provides a feeling of space and openness. As a symbol of Shanghai, the Bund houses buildings of various architectural styles lining the Huangpu River, such as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Beaux-Arts, and Art Deco. While vary in styles and colors, the buildings appear harmoniously together, thus gaining the name of “Gallery of World Architecture”. For more information, click here.

Xintiandi (Chinese: 新天地)

Xintiandi is where "yesterday meets tomorrow in Shanghai today." As a re-creation born out of the sprawls of Shikumen housing, which is the architectural symbol of Shanghai in the 20th century, Xintiandi is a place to unwind and relax after a long day. Xintiandi's Shikumen attraction was created by converting residential blocks into a multifunctional dining, retail and entertainment center. The Shikumen buildings within Xintiandi retain the antique walls, tiles and exterior of the Shikumen housing of old Shanghai, while the internal spaces have been designed and decorated to suit the up tempo lifestyle of the 21st century urbanites, with infinite details that exude the casual elegance of modern city living.
