85,000 people welcomed the New Year at the Bund on Sunday midnight. Shanghai police provided strict security service to safeguard the celebration, eastday.com reported Monday.

The Bund is one of the most popular destinations in Shanghai. It is estimated that over 320,000 people gathered at the riverbank Sunday, although there were no countdown events.

From 7 pm onwards, thousands of people began pouring into the Bund. "With the police in full force every few meters, I feel quite safe," said a visitor from Central China's Hunan Province surnamed Huang, who came with his family. Due to the crowds, it took them an hour to walk from People's Square Station to the Bund.
