On the other side of the Huangpu River from Pudong, north of the old walled city of Shanghai, China, is the historically significant Bund (Waitan). "Bund" derives from an Anglo-Indian word for an embankment along a muddy waterfront and that is what it was in the beginning when the first British company opened a office there in 1846. In the late 19th and early 20th century many foreign corporations followed and set up their massive Chinese trading centers. Consulates of most countries, many banks, businesses and newspaper offices, hotels, exclusive clubs, press organizations and headquarters of international concerns settled on the Bund.
Centered on Zhongshan Road within the former Shanghai International Settlement, the famous one mile long waterfront, a symbol of Shanghai, was the centre of Shanghai's politics, economy and culture, and it was China's Wall Street, as Shanghai's financial market became the third largest in the world (behind London and New York).
The most famous and attractive sight, which is at the west side of the Bund, are 52 various buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism, Renaissance, Beaux-Arts, Neo-Classical, Art Deco, eclectic and modern.
