Explore! Shanghai and the Bund
Shanghai, a city of more than 23.9 million people, is the second largest city in China. (Chongqing is the largest, with more than 32 million!) With a rich history of international trading, Shanghai is truly a modern city.
Our hotel is walking distance from the Bund; an area with dozens of historical buildings, lining the Huangpu River.
At the end of the 19th century, the Bund housed numerous banks and trading houses from the United Kingdom, France, US, Italy, Russia, Germany, Japan, Netherlands and Belgium, as well as the consulates of Russia and Britain.
Skyscrapers dominate the horizon, with the Oriental Pearl Tower capturing the eye of every visitor.
In the evening, a popular activity is to take a cruise on the Huangpu River, to enjoy the splendor that is Shanghai at night.
