老上海之旅, 感受别样外滩的古典建筑 Mesmerized By The Historic Architecture Buildings At The Bund In Shanghai, China
外滩在英语里是 Bund，意思是 “有堤岸的港埠”。西方人称之为 Bund，中国人则称此地为外滩。
One of the most historic cities in Asia, Shanghai truly has something for everyone. No matter what your pleasure – architecture, food, art, culture, or breathtaking scenery, you’re sure to find it in this coastal Chinese metropolis. One of the most popular destinations in Shanghai for tourists and locals alike, the Bund is a waterfront walkway that stretches one mile along the bank of the Huangpu River.
Each city has its own iconic landmarks which have been lingering in people’s minds either due to their greatness or intriguing stories behind them. Shanghai architectural landmarks mainly epitomize the colonial buildings set up in the early 1900s and the modern and futuristic architectures constructed in late 1900s and early 2000s, the two main periods for the massive city construction in Shanghai. Lined by dozens of impressive and historical buildings, it’s surely a sight to see so please don’t forget your camera!
Hi everyone, I've just returned from a summer adventure at Shanghai. It’s hard to explain the sense of optimism and excitement that you feel when you walk through Shanghai – it’s a city that is just alive and buzzing. I think this is because China is a country that is developing so quickly and playing an increasingly important role globally.
Shanghai is a great place to get an understanding of modern China’s role in our global future. The city also offers a great mix of old and new – on the one hand you can see old-school produce markets in the streets, eat traditional cuisine, and witness time-honored customs, but on the other hand you can see a rapidly expanding skyline that is so gleaming and futuristic it almost looks like it was built by aliens. Where else in the world can you experience such a contrast?
