The Bund Introduction

“The Bund” is an Anglo-Indian term for the embankment of a muddy waterfront. The Bund, however, is much more glorious than its name implies. It is famous for the multitude of colonial styles of architectures lining the street along the Huangpu River. The 52 buildings in the Bund represent different architectural styles, such as Gothic, baroque, Roman, Renaissance, British, French and East Indian. Though they differ from each other, all these buildings achieve a harmonic outline when viewed as a whole. During the 1920’s and 1930’s, the bund was the Wall Street of Asia. Powerful foreign financial houses were represented in the huge edifices that lined the edge of the river. Glimpses of this era are still evident in several of the hotels and bank buildings that allow visitors in to gawk at the marble columns, wide staircases, and rich wood paneling. Photographs are not allowed, so don't try.
Outside you can cross the street and walk along the river o­n the expansive rivercade, to watch the constant flow of river barges or admire the ever-growing skyline of Pudong.
