About The Bund, Shanghai

The namesake of this waterfront area is derived from the Persian and Hindustani word, Band. The word literally translates to dam, embankment or levee. Located in the eastern part of the Huangpu District on Zhongshan Road, the Bund basically refers to a number of wharves and buildings that are situated along the Huangpu River.

One of the most prominent aspects of the near fifty two buildings that are part of The Bund is the architectural styles. Shanghai is one of the most appropriate places in the world to view the Art Deco form of architecture. But, this area and its buildings show influences from numerous styles other than Art Deco such as Romanesque Revival, Renaissance Revival, Gothic Revival, Baroque Revival and Neo-Classical Revival; but most common among them is the Eclecticist form of design. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Shanghai Itinerary 5 Days.
