The 'Bund Bull' was unveiled in 2010
For a dramatic contrast, turn your attention back to the Bund, where you can see what was
the tallest structure in the city in the early 20th century: the stately Edwardian red-and-white-
brick Swatch Art Peace Hotel (Heping Huizhong Fandian), originally the Palace Hotel, at
No.19. Its ornate wood-panelled and gilt-edged lobby is worth a look.
To its left stands Bund 18 (Waitan Shibahao), winner of a UNESCO award for the exem-
plary restoration of the former 1927 Chartered Bank of Australia, India and China. Today it's
home to Mr & Mrs Bund, named on S.Pellegrino's 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' list in 2013.
The AIA Building (Youbang Baoxian Dasha) next door was built in 1923 and was originally
the home of the North China Daily News .
