Set some time aside to explore this truly exotic city with its dynamic mix of ancient and modern culture.
Dear Breakbulk Asia Delegates: Welcome to Breakbulk Asia 2019! Thank you for your support and participation in this event! We are preparing for this event and hope to bring you the best experience of the exhibition. Meanwhile, as a native Shanghainese, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite restaurants and the must-see sights around Shanghai. Looking forward to welcoming you in Shanghai!
1. The Bund (pictured above)
The Bund is a mile-long stretch of waterfront promenade along the Huangpu River. To the west, stand 52 buildings of various architectural styles, including Gothic, baroque, and neoclassical. It is often referred to as “the museum of buildings.” Roaming among the architectural complexes, you’ll have a better under-standing of the century-long charm of this city. No visit to Shanghai is complete without a stroll along the Bund.
