The Bund

KHANG n. river
The Bund is a bustling district in Shanghai. It stretches along the western bank of Huangpu River. It is now considered one of Asia's leading financial hubs. For those of us who grew up watching 80s TV shows, the Bund might remind you of a popular Hong Kong godfather mini-series starring Chow Yun-Fatt. Long pang... long yau... so the song goes.

For a small town boy like myself, the buildings and structures that grace the Bund are truly a majestic, awe-inspiring sight. The traffic rushed past at dizzying speed and the lights are almost blinding; it has all the effects of making you feel really small.

I wanted to see the famous bridge featured in the Spielberg's movie Empire of the Sun, disappointingly, nobody knew. Almost everyone enjoying the walk along the Bund were tourists.

Then I came across this intriguing statue:

Is this Chairman Michael Jackson or King of Pop Mao?
