Riverside Promenade


Hands down the best stroll in Pudong. The sections of promenade alongside Riverside Ave on the eastern bank of the Huangpu River offer splendid dusk and night views to the Bund across the way – evenings are the time when local families go out for strolls and the promenade livens up. Choicely positioned cafes look out over the water.
