Waibaidu Bridge Tips (4)

Waibaidu Bridge

Waibaidu Bridge is always my favorite landmark of the North Bund Shanghai. This bridge was first built in 1855 spanning over Suzhou Creek. Due to heavy traffic crossing the bridge, the city of Shanghai had upgraded the bridge from wood to iron and steel in 1907. This bridge can load up to 20 tons, with 106.7 meter long. It has the traffic lane of 11.2 meters wide, and sidewalk lane of 3.6 meter wide.

My first visit to Shanghai 2003, I was stayingin The Astro House. I walked pass the bridge everyday, and always impressed with the views surrounding it.

Don't miss...

Waibaidu Bridge

At the northern end of the Bund is the Waibaidu Bridge, previously called Garden Bridge, which spans Suzhou Creek. The current bridge was built in 1907 by the English, the first steel bridge in China and replacing a previous wooden bridge of the same name. When the Japanese invaded Shanghai in the late 1930s, Waibaidu Bridge was the border between Japanese occupied territory and the International Settlement, and Chinese citizens crossing the bridge were often subject to interrogation and harrassment. There is no sign of this colourful history today at the bridge, just panoramic views of Pudong and the Huangpu River.
