      WALK ALONG THE BUND

      This glitzy esplanade along the Huangpu waterfront may be touristy, but the views of colonial buildings as well as the Oriental Pearl and other ultramodern developments of Pudong make it a must do for anyone who wants to understand the charming contrasts of contemporary Shanghai.  To watch the city light up and the locals wind down, come for a leisurely walk along the Bund at sunset and duck into one of the area’s glamorous rooftop bars.
