The Bund, which extends from Jinling Road
in the south to the Waibaidu Bridge over the Suzhou
Creek in the north, is on the western bank of the Huangpu
River. It is a 1.5-kilometer boulevard and used to be
called the Huangpu Shoal. It used to be a 10-meter-wide
boulevard lined with canopy-like sycamores. Cedars,
cassias, and camphor trees made the street green all
the year round. Flower beds were always in blossoms.
Now it becomes the favored place for the tourists to
tarry and enjoy the river scene and cultural activities
going on along the Bund. Walking up to the dam, you
will be fascinated by the sight of forest of masts,
the glittering waves, the impressive skyline, and shadowy
trees interlacing with beautiful flowers. It is just
like a magnificent scroll.
The Bund -- known as a miniature museum of
international architecture with dozens of high buildings
standing along the shore and overlooking the shuttling
sailing vessels on the Huangpu River amid the whistle
blasts here and there.
