The Bund is regarded as the symbol of Shanghai with its magnificent landmarks. It is actually a waterfront area of Pu Xi (West City/Shanghai Old Town) that faces the newer part of Shanghai - Pu Dong (East City/Shanghai New Town), with the renowned Huangpu River flowing in between. Here in the bund, you can see the essence of Shanghai, the prosperous, historical and elegant Shanghai. So, it is not exaggerating to say, if you have never been to the Bund, then you have never been to Shanghai.
The Oriental Pearl Tower is a TV tower in Shanghai. The 468 m (1,535 feet) high tower stands by the east bank of Huangpu River, opposite to the Bund. Currently the tower is ranked as the 5th tallest tower in the world, and the 3rd tallest tower in Asia.
The tower boasts three 360-degree sightseeing floors, namely the 350-meter-high Capsule Floor, 263-meter-high Main Sightseeing Floor and the 259-meter-high Hanging Sightseeing Floor. The most welcomed goes to the last one. With transparent glass, the Floor gives all the visitors the realest bird's eye view of the Shanghai cityscape.
With a long history of more than 400 years, the Yuyuan Garden, also known as the Yu Garden, is the most celebrated classical Chinese garden in Shanghai. The garden is located to the northeast of the old town, not far from the Bund.
