The Bund
Symbolic of concession-era Sh��ngh��i, the Bund was the city's Wall Street, a place of feverish trading and fortunes made and lost. Originally a towpath for dragging barges of rice, the Bund (an Anglo-Indian term for the embankment of a muddy waterfront) was gradually transformed into a grandiose sweep of the most powerful banks and trading houses in Sh��ngh��i.The optimum activity here is to simply stroll, contrasting the bones of the past with the futuristic geometry of P��d��ng's skyline.
