  • being at this place can give you enough energy for spending your ongoing month. walking through river and watching sky scraper and light and ferry boats can give you good feelings. you can buy tickets there for take ferry boats and feel the smooth wind touch your skin. It is better to try it.
  • If you are in Shanghai or planning to visit it, check into your hotel and head straight to the BUND. The views are amazing, the river amidst the building looks so cool and majestic. The ferry ride at night with all the buildings slowly starting to glow - is the perfect sight. Try taking the ferry just before sunset so that the buildings start to glow during your one hour ride and you get to see some breathtaking views. The look of Oriental towers and other tall buildings in the financial center of Shanghai will surely blow you away! Loved it!!
