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.

General information about Shanghai

Shanghai (Chinese: 上海) literally means the city by the sea. Situated right in the middle of China's east coastline, Shanghai is an excellent sea and river port, boasting easy access to the vast hinterland. The city is divided into two parts by the Huangpu River: Puxi (west of the Huangpu River) and Pudong (east of the Huangpu River). Puxi is the older part of the city and hosts the majority of shops, restaurants, and museums. Pudong is the modern part, and is recognized for its rather unusual yet extremely impressive high-rises such as Shanghai's tallest buildings, the Shanghai International Financial Center, Jinmao Building, and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.

With a pleasant northern subtropical maritime monsoon climate, Shanghai enjoys four distinct seasons, generous sunshine and abundant rainfall. Its spring and autumn are relatively short compared with summer and winter. It will be winter season during the December, with temperature typically ranging from 36 to 63 degree Fahrenheit (2 to 17 degree Celsius). Sweater and overcoat are appropriate in winter.
