Guide Notes:

I quite like the Rockbund Art Museum (also referred to as "RAM") because it is small and I find their exhibitions usually really interesting. They bring in a lot of collaborative art with Chinese artists and sometimes the entire interior is used as part of the exhibition itself (as opposed simply to hosting it).

The museum also hosts different lecture series so they have a lot of interesting things going on.

The museum is located just behind the Peninsula Hotel a the northern section of the Bund. We like to take our visitors on a walking tour, starting at the museum, and then walking south along the historic side of the Bund looking at the interesting facades with the Pudong skyline just across the river. On the southern end, we stop in to the Glamour Bar or the Waldorf-Astoria's Long Bar for drinks at the end of the walk.
