The monument itself is a rather simple structure, but if you take the ramp down, you will see a wall of carvings outlining the history of this area. Then, if you walk into the entrance directly below the structure, you will see an underground area...More

Located on the Bund, this structure and its ambience tell us the history of Shanghai. Two pointed and huge concrete pillars are the main attraction. Looks mote impressive in the night with light effects.

The concrete monument itself is not that impressive - more of a modern carbuncle than a spectacle. However, when you walk right up to the monument, an underground pit is revealed, housing a simple but decent summary of the city's development and the people who...More

The bridge might be of special interest to the locals but for foreigners it is a rather ordinary monument overshadowed by the impressive background of the Pudong buildings !

Interesting monument and nod to the country's socialist struggle. The hero's monument is imposing and striking, standing at the north end of the Bund. But it is easily overshadowed by the mind-blowing skyline of Pudong. Part of the Bund scene!

If you are just looking at the monument, I would say that there is nothing awe-inspiring about it at all. Most people come see the river, and this monument is just another one of China's many many many monuments, so I would say it is...More

Easily reached at the north end of the Bund promenade; large monument. Good place for taking in views of the Bund too. Definitely worth a look.

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai

endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
