3rd of June, 2013: Visit of Bund and Huangpu
Departure: 12.00 am
Return: 7.00 pm
For this first weekend in Shanghai, we decided to visit an area of the city, Huangpu.
Shanghai consists of 8 districts:
- The Bund and Renmin Square (Huangpu)
- The Old Town
- East of the French Concession
- West of the French Concession
- Xujiahui and south of Shanghai
- Hongkou and north of Shanghai
We went to the first of the list. Start of the tour right out of the stone house (south Pudong) with a typical covered Chinese market.
On the menu: dumpling, noodle, fruits & vegetables, spices, tea and live fish. High color and smell!
Yangpu district is the heart of Shanghai. The atmosphere is electric, many, sound and animation. Renmin Square is a nice park like Central Park in New York where you come out of this excitement of People Square.
After purchasing a pancake with vegetables inside for 20 Y. Direction The Bund with a long walk on Nanjing Road. This street also looks like a very famous street of New York: Broadway. Department store, big giant screen, thrift and restaurants. Warning, it’s very easy to get lost in this street.
The Bund, a large esplanade overlooking stunning views of Pudong with the tallest towers in the world. Unfortunately it starts raining, we stoped our visit.
