Bund has no meaning outside of Shanghai tourism

by Thirdrockphoto

Is there a Hindi native speaker out there who can confirm the Hindi meaning of "Bund"? It is not in three Hindi dictionaries that I have consulted nor is it meaningful in German except as a promisory note or political group. I am all for mixing international terms into English but this one seems a total mistake of unknow origin. We are now too long accustomed to this mystery word to let it go but if we could, levee (from Cajun dialect meaning the raised bank of a river intended to contain rising water, that is originally from French "lever" meaning "to raise"), is the English term that could better serve international tourists. No one who is unfamiliar with Shanghai can know what the heck bund means.

Shanghai Bund

by Confucius

The name "Bund" comes from a common term used for the dikes made of stone and earth that once occupied the banks of the Huangpu River. They were called "bunds" in the English language.

You can put away your Hindi dictionaries now.

And you can put away your English dictionaries because bund isn't there. At this point, you must admit the origin is unknown and unused outside of Shanghai.

Bund has no meaning to aliens from outer space

by Confucius

"Bund" is in my dictionary of English. (The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition.) Which English dictionary do you have? Whcih planet are you from?

by Lance_in_shanghai

Don't be so hard on this person. The word is very unusual and he/she is right that it is only used here in Shanghai. How it got started is beyond me but we have it so let's have fund on the bund.

Shanghai's Bund: Let's call it "Levee" instead

by Confucius

The word is not unusual to native speakers of the English language and Third Rock From The Sun believes "bund" does not appear in English dictionaries.
He/she/it even goes so far as to suggest that "Bund" should be renamed "Levee"

Fund on the Bund? What are you, an investment banker?

RE: Bund has no meaning outside of Shanghai tourism

by qaminari

Levee in the American sense was unknown to me, as a British English speaker (and French user, as I have never come across levée in this sense in France or Belgium), before the song "American Pie", and was probably unknown to many more until the floods in New Orleans - I certainly don't associate it with Shanghai where THE BUND refers to a rather specific place. No-one goes around referring to bunds in general, so I don't see why the name of the one in Shanghai should be changed after hundreds of years just because one person doesn't like it. If you want to tell AMERICAN (rather than other international tourists) that The Bund is a levee, however, go ahead.

The word 'bund' is commonly used in industry for a mound that completely encircles a tank (like an oil tank) to contain a spillage.

Surprise surprise! The word "levee" is definitely familiar to me (I speak British not American English) as it was a term learned in geography lessons, on the topic of rivers.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Jogging

by herzog63

If you enjoy jogging and want to join a group...You'll have no problems at all!! I saw so many groups of people doing early morning jogs. I'm sure they would be friendly enough to allow you come along.

You could learn a lot from Taxi Drivers

by we2364

Taxi is one of the popular transportation vehicle in Shanghai. Considering a population over 18million in such a cosmopolitan, the number of taxi can never be enough. Especially during the peak hour of the day or a rainy day, you can hardly find one. Sometimes, people here don't line up for getting a taxi. They always stand beside the main street and try to get a taxi first. Such a situation can go with an extreme during a rainy day.

If you want to know more about the city, the first hand information is from those taxi drivers whom meet people from different corners of the world everyday. They are less conversable comparing to the drivers in Beijing. But among those who wants to talk with you, they are NICE drivers! The topic can be ranged from the affairs of the country to some individual trinket.

One foggy morning, I was late and had to rush to the office by taking the taxi. The driver was a middle-aged kind person. He received one phone call and told me it's his good friend invited him for a dinner. Later, he explained this friend owed him RMB1000(this is a considerable amount of money for normal Chinese) due to the loss on the gambling. But I could hardly see the anger on his face, nor the blaming attitude, but with a murmuring: there's no way, that's fine! He slightly mentioned they had been friends for many years and the friend was younger than him (according to Chinese tradition, elders should look after the juniors while juniors should pay the respect to elders). But he did emphasize that he was indeed a good friend. Whenever he needed the help from him, his friend never had any reluctance or hesitation - in one Chinese saying: the real friend is the one willing to have knifes on his ribs! And this is called Yi(Personal Loyalty) between friends.

At the transit time China moves toward civilization while the valuable tradition was not well-protected, I feel touched and appreciated such a valuable tradition still penetrates into individual common Chinese!

Walk to the Bund and around

by amarshah

I was suggested to spend one evening by a friend on the BUND. So i take the metro line 1 to Nanjilu station walk down further approx 10min across a cinema to the Najjinlu road... both side are famous for its shops these are original branded shops unlike the fake market, its a 5.5 km road as it was early evening i talked through it to the BUND a nice riverfront elavted and yes crowded, ppl offer to take your photographs for a fee. Across the river is the The Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Which can be reached via a underground cart ride under the bund, if you have opted to go there the way i have ensure you take a return ticket. The ride is preety colourfull. The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is worth a visit. When i visited it there was some program going on at the bottom, the views from top and awesome.

Shanghai Museum

by ahoerner

A very modern building, example of the new face of China, it is considered to have one of the best art collections in China, including a Bronze Gallery, Sculpture, Caligraphy, Pottery, Paitings, Jade, Furniture, Coins & Postal Stamps and the best of it: Etnical Arts.

Suggested visit time is at least half a day. If you want a deeper introduction to some aspects of Chinese life, you will probably spend a whole day there.

Admission: RMB 20,00.

Yu Yuan Garden

by Willettsworld

This beautiful 2 hectares (5 acres) Suzhou-style garden, in the Old Town district of Nanshi, was reportedly first established in 1559 as a private garden created by Pan Yunduan, who spent almost 20 years building a garden to please his father Pan En, a high-ranking official in the Ming Dynasty, during his father's old age. Over the years, the gardens fell into disrepair until about 1760 when bought by merchants, then suffered extensive damage in the 19th century, especially during bombardments of the Opium Wars. During the Taiping Rebellion the gardens were occupied by imperial troops, and damaged again by the Japanese in 1942. They were repaired by the Shanghai government from 1956-1961, opened to the public in 1961, and declared a national monument in 1982.
