The Bund is the symbol of both old and new Shanghai. It is a 4-km-long waterfront boulevard along the western Bank of the Huangpu River, stretching from the Waibaidu Bridge in the north to the Nanpu Bridge in the south. The name "Bund" is derived from an Anglo-Indian term meaning "a muddy embankment," recalling the flood barriers that used to line around it. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Shanghai was still a small seaside town on the shore of the Huangpu River, and the Bund area was a mere muddy, shallow waterfront. During the early 20th century china began allowing western counries financial activity, and shanghai became “pearl of the east”. The bund area became home for major foreign trade and finance instituetions. Today, there are 52 buildings of different architectural styles on the bund, creating a live museum of International Architecture. Shanghai’s significance in china’s development, both currently and a century ago, gives the Bund spe cial cultural significance.
