The Bund is the cultural section of Shanghai that best represents the blending of ancient and modern influences. This renowned waterfront district is the city's most famous landmark. The word Bund is of Anglo-Indian origin meaning 'embankment on the waterfront', and you'll experience the definition literally with a feeling of space and openness that you won't find anywhere else in Shanghai.
The evening cruise is on the Huangpu River, which divides the Bund into two sections, Pu Dong and Pu Xi, which mean 'east of river' and 'west of river' respectively. Local people honour the Huangpu as Mother River, and as you view the lights and spectacle from the deck of your evening cruise, you will understand why and appreciate both sides of The Bund’s trademark architecture at once, with authentic colonial buildings on one side and towering modern skyscrapers on the other.
