NCT's Shanghai series - The Bund

Pictures of the Bund after the makeover have been posted here ad-nauseum, but hey, what the hell!

I started my tour of the Bund at its southern point, Xinkaihe, where a new bus station was recently built.





Quite a lot of empty space if you ask me

Anyway let's not dwell too much on bus stations eh.



Some of the buildings were still in the process of being renovated.



It was in the morning so the waterfront was still quiet. As usual the Sun hid behind a cloud ...



Works to put in wheelchair friendly ramps

Yan'an Road East - the then southern boundary of the British concession, hence marks the start of the Bund proper.

I then went off do take more pictures of Nanjing Road and Xintiandi (coming soon!) and returned here at dusk, to find the place much busier than in the morning.







Looking across the North Bund



The classical view of Lujiazui



And I finish this thread with one last Bund panorama

I hope Shanghai is not going to look like any other city . I hope Shanghai is just Shanghai. It can become a very special diverse city,combining eastern and western cultural elements in its own way.

The Peninsular Shanghai is quite an epic! It has added more elegance and magnificence to the whole Bund Area, imo.
