Zhongshan Rd (The Bund)

Saturday afternoon I tested my Chinese skills a little further, and took a taxi in to see The Bund. It was a little challenging since I didn’t know the Chinese for The Bund… but just using the street name and pointing on my map seemed to do the trick !!!

The Bund is the original Western’ised part of Shanghai, from around the late 1800’s when Germany, Britain, France etc. were all staking their claim in the area – lots of old European architecture for large banks, offices, government departments etc. And of course over the other side of the river is the more modern Shanghai, wil tall glass buildings, the sky tower etc.
