Don't leave Shanghai without...
Strolling along the Bund. Take a leisurely wander along Shanghai's iconic water-
front promenade admiring the historic stone edifices of the former 'Wall Street of
Asia'. Take the obligatory snap of the futuristic towers that face-off across the river

M on the Bund terrace. For more information, click here .
