Post 2 Shanghai – Night at the Bund
Have you seen the Bund at night? Shanghai’s skyline at night is second to none in the world. Take a cruise on the Huangpu River to enjoy the night scenery along the Pudong District and the Bund’s shore. On the Bund side of the river, majestic buildings rich in history were erected by many Western countries between 1850 and 1940. During those years, Shanghai was made land available for rent by the Qing Dynasty government. The British, French and Americans were the first to invest and build on their respective land in Shanghai. The distinctive architectural details are now highlighted by colourful projector lights. On the Pudong side of the river, there lies a stunning contrast. A new business district has developed to satisfy the need for expansion. Skyscrapers reach new heights, towering side by side and loaded with digital screens from top to bottom displaying the energy of the futuristic city of your dreams. Only, you realize that the future is here, now.
