Surfs Up!

Let's start with the surfing, because... it's surfing on the Bund! BFC has installed a 15-meter-long, 6-meter-wide surfing machine on its North Plaza. Until the end of August, you can enjoy the fun of riding waves, under the professional guidance of surfing instructors, from 10am-10pm weekends and 1-10pm weekdays.

Ride the Wave

Just next to the surfing machine is a bona fide beach, complete with real sand and camping areas, allowing visitors to experience oceanside living on the Bund. BFC has teamed up with Mexican beer brand Corona, known as 'Sunset in a Bottle,' to present beach sunset concerts, with the beach becoming a huge dance floor.

Urban Beach Glamping

Outdoor brand MOBI GARDEN has selected popular outdoor products to create a luxury camping AKA 'glamping' scene on the lawn of the camping area.

Water gun battle games, craft beer, trendy products and a cozy rest area created by artistic giant sprays and hammocks all allow visitors to socialize casually with a unique experience.

Professional camping equipment also allows visitors to take camping photos on the Bund.

Weekend Market @BFC

Right next to the beach and camping area, a weekend market at BFC offers the finest food and drink from around the world. With funky tunes pumping from the sound system, the outdoor market feel is complete.

For those looking to cool off, BFC Kyoto House has launched its Summer House, beautifully adorned with Japanese lanterns, providing refreshing sake and specialty coffee drinks, so that everyone can take a short break from the hot daily life and enjoy the tranquility.

Activities & Shows

As well as the live band there will be special shows all summer long. The opening weekend saw the star coaches of BFC FITNESS leading sports enthusiasts in full-body muscle training.
