At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The historical artery of Shanghai.

The Bund ("dyke" or "dock") is a boulevard along the Huangpu River that winds through the city.
Located in the International Settlement of Shanghai in the 30s, the Bund was the centre of economic and political affairs of Shanghai and China as a whole, comprising of banks, large companies and consulates as well as palaces, theatres and casinos. The beautiful - and recently redeveloped - promenade allows visitors to admire the great buildings all around, typical of the architecture of the early 20th century.
The Bund also offers a magnificent view of the new business district of Shanghai across the Huangpu.
Indeed, rather symbolically, it is opposite the Bund that the skyscrapers of 21st century China are located, including the Oriental Pearl Tower, at 468 metres high, which is becoming the emblem of the new Shanghai.
