SIGHTS

Paradise - - Traveller -

The Bund (of­fi­cially Zhong­shan Road) is lined with Euro­pean colo­nial build­ings, many now hous­ing up­mar­ket restau­rants and ho­tels, and has a lively river­bank prom­e­nade with daz­zling views of Pudong’s sky­scrapers.

The Huangpu district’s French Con­ces­sion is char­ac­terised by colo­nial man­sions and tree-lined av­enues, and is an agree­able area of bou­tique shops, tea houses and parks.

The area known as Xin­tiandi is the epi­cen­tre of Shang­hai’s nightlife.

Yu Gar­den (218 An­ren Road, Huangpu) was laid out in the 16th cen­tury and is one of the few his­toric sights in Shang­hai. It fea­tures tra­di­tional court­yards, carp-filled ponds and pavil­ions with up­turned red roofs.
