The Attractions in Shanghai
The Bund

Walking along Zhongshan Road, not only can visitors enjoy the scenery of Huangpu River but have a glimpse of the development of Lujiazui district on the other side. The architecture along the Bund is unanimously honored as a "World Architectural Fair", including all kinds of tall buildings like the Gothic style, Baroque style, Roman style, Classical style, Renaissance style and the combination of Chinese and Western style. It is a romantic place for lovers.
