Shanghai to Beijing

by brownbag

I will be coming to China at the end of August. Flying into Shanghai and taking the train to Beijing the same day. I hope to spend a few days in Shanghai on the return trip.

I will arrive at the airport(PVG) in Shanghai around 2:00p.m. and be taking a train north at around 7:00p.m.

Actually I have several questions.
1 The best way to get from the airport to the train station.
2 Is there somewhere to keep my bags until the train leaves?
AND Is there anything interesting to do in that area while I wait for the train?

This is all assuming that I'm not a jet lagged Zombi at the time.

I'm sure I'll have other postings about my stay in Shanghai when I return, but for now I'll leave it at this.

Thanks Mike

1) I presume you're arriving at Shanghai Pudong airport (PVG)? Take airport shuttle no.5 for 18 RMB/pax, to Shanghai main train station -- this is the final terminus so there's no need to worry about getting off at the wrong place.

2) Yes, there're a number of left-luggage places around the train station. I would suggest that you try to look for the south-east or south-west exits of the train station, as those are good landmarks... otherwise you might forget which particular one you left your stuff at!
Nothing of real interest in that area, and it's not a particularly attractive area either. However, it's connected to the metro system so it won't be difficult to get to somewhere more interesting. The metro is clearly signposted in both English and Chinese characters so it's quite easy to figure out. Look on http://www.exploreshanghai.com/metro for an interactive map of Shanghai's metro system. Please note that there're 2 train stations, please don't go to the wrong one -- the one you want is "Shanghai Railway Station", interchange for lines 1 (red), 3 (yellow) and 4 (purple). If you want suggestions for sightseeing, it would be helpful to indicate your interests/preferences so that we could give more useful answers.

Also, I'm afraid that you might have problems getting train tickets on the day itself, if you're hoping to take sleepers. Train tickets go on sale 10 days in advance; and I'm sure there would be plenty of human traffic on this route (and on any of the popular routes in China) due to everyone travelling around after the Olympics, for sightseeing and other reasons.

If you've any more questions, feel free to VTMail, or email me at ellyse99@yahoo.com -- please put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg brownbag) in the subject line so that I know who you are, thanks!

Re: Shanghai to Beijing

"Oriental pear"
So, has that thing changed shapes recently?
I really don't think it's a good idea to suggest that route. Dragging around luggage on the metro is a REALLY lousy idea!!!

I think I need to stash my bags before I do any wandering around.

Big shopping mall next to the Oriental Pearl Tower

by Travelchili

Next to the Oriental Pearl Tower you can find a huge and very modern shopping mall. You can find many local and foreign stores there, selling clothes, shoes, bags, perfumes, make-up, stationery, etc. On the top floor (I think it was the fifth), you can find a row of restaurants. Some of them offer local Chinese cuisine, but there are some other options like Thai, Italian, and vegetarian restaurants as well.

Floating Restaurant in Shanghai

by yipsufen about Di Long (Imperial Dragon) Floating Restaurant

A restaurant shaped like a dragon lit with neon lights parked just below the Nanpu Bridge. The exterior and interior are very grand & just like dining on an emperor's feast. Order the famous hairy crab dish in autumn months.

Shanghai Museum.

by Guantanamera

Despite the somewhat vague sounding name, Shanghai Museum is an excellent, very modern museum space, located in the beautifully planned People's Park district of Shanghai... As you can see by this picture of the structure, it is designed to resemble the Chinese tripod-supported bowl known as a ding...

The buzzling city

by JoyTraveller

The city's famous soup dumplings served with a straw fills one's memories.

If your walking pace is slower than the locals, you probably get squeezed out of the pavements and even toilet queues, not with violence but you probably take few seconds to realised it happened. :D
