If you want to go jogging during your stay at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund, just ask the concierge for a map. He or she will show you where to go and keep you up to date on any construction-related route changes. There’s a jogging route along the Bund that gives you views on one side of the Bund’s historic architecture and, on the other, Pudong’s futuristic skyline complete with the Oriental Pearl Tower. Note that jogging has not caught on in China and you’ll rarely see other runners. If you go jogging in the middle of the day on the Bund, be prepared for open-mouthed stares from Chinese tourists visiting from other cities. Also know that pollution in Shanghai is bad, so don’t be surprised if you’re more out of breath jogging here than at home.
