The Bund is an epitome of Shanghai's history and it symbolizes Shanghai. It got its name from a desolate beach outside the old Shanghai City.
Between 1840 into the 1930's, many foreign businesses snatched this area to establish concessions, banks, headquarters, consul houses and so on. Hence, Shanghai, China, a small seaside town one hundred years ago, became the largest city in Asia. It also earned the reputation of "The Oriental Wall Street".
Looking at the Bund's historic buildings visitors can still feel the prosperity of the old Shanghai.
