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.
