The Bund is a selection of west riverside of Huangpu, the mother river of Shanghai, and it is a record of architecture of times from around the world. Most of the architecture were bank buildings or other commercial buildings. Though these buildings represent different architectural styles, such like Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Renaissance and Chinese-Western combined, they are identical in their tones and skylines are harmonious. One of the grandest of these buildings, formerly the City Communist Party headquarters, is now the home of the Shanghai Pudong Development Bank. The wide riverfront promenade on the east bank of the river provides a captivating view of Shanghai, particularly at night.
