Travel Haiku - The Bund, Shanghai (China) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

The Bund
here too Chow Yun Fatt
sows his fame

The Bund
an old dream by the Huangpu
comes alive

The Bund
the Malaysians say it reminds them
of their independence Square

The Bund
the old has flowed out to sea
the new excites a whole nation

The Bund, one of Shanghai's biggest attractions, is located on the shore of the Huangpu River and forms the easternmost edge of old downtown Shanghai. Stroll past the stately colonial-style buildings—once foreign banks and trading houses—that give the area its distinct Western architectural signature. Along the Bund Promenade, you'll find locals practicing tai chi and ballroom dance in the early morning. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Pudong skyline across the river, or head inland and shop on Nanjing Road, loaded with the neon signs of stores, restaurants, and pedestrian bazaars.
