The Bund is the historical riverfront district in the Huangpu district of Shanghai China.  It was home to some 20 historical banks and trading houses that date back to a time when the European powers had settlements in Shanghai. 

The Bund area was originally part of the British settlement which was later combined with the British and American settlements to become what was known as the International Settlement.
