The Bund. The Bund alongside Huangpu River once was the financial center of the Far East. It is considered the city's symbol since the 1920s. It is often referred to as "the museum of buildings", as many different styles of European buildings can be found here. Now it is even more attractive as you can also see modern skyscrapers just opposite the Huangpu River. That gives you a strong contrast between modern life and the past. Beware friendly "tourists" from China or "friendly" locals that approach or ask for photos, then invite you to join them for a drink or tea. It is likely a scam where they leave you with a huge bill. A polite decline of the invitation is fine.
