What I Think of The Bund Hotel in Shanghai, China

A
few days after we landed in the stunning city of Hangzhou, the capital of

Zhejiang, we went on a 2-hour 30-minute bus ride to Shanghai, the largest city

in China by population and the second most densely populated city in the world.


From Hangzhou's sprawling scenery and admirable infrastructure, the ride

provided an unhindered view of Shanghai's equally formidable edifices and

skyscrapers mixed with equally cared for scenery and waterfronts. 



That's why when we were scheduled to visit The Bund, a highly-recommended

attraction that's a fitting fusion of both worlds, I for one, can't wait for it to

actually, happen.

It was already nighttime when we arrived at The Bund Hotel located along

Guangdong Road in the Huangpu District. The hotel lighting for instance added

a splash of elegance to the exterior which was of course more of a necessity

rather than of sheer opulence.
