The bund

A symbol of colonial Shanghai, back in the days when the foreign powers began to carve out the coast of China for themselves. They built the bund and stock it with buildings belonging to the world's financial business. This is akin to Wall street. Today visitors flock here to view the financial might of Shanghai. Across the Huang Po river is the Pudong area and again the sky scrapers dot the river banks, every one is all lit up and posting gigantic neon signs that changed with each passing minute. It was a spectacular sight to behold. We waited for the night sky to come and to see the lights go up. Wow!
