China Construction Bank ATM at Shanghai/Pudong?

by Chico53

I am a Bk of America customer and would like to avoid ATM fees if I can. Their affiliate in China is the China Construction Bank, at whose ATMs there is no additional fee. Do they have an ATM at Pudong airport (international arrival)? I would like to get some local currency before heading into the city. Thanks.

There are ATMs everywhere in Shanghai. China construction bank has many of them. Is there one of that variety in the airpor, maybe, but it is better to take $100 in cash and exchange it at the airport. You may not get the best exchange, but the money in your pocket will buy you time to look around your hotel for the ATM you want to frequent.

I think I do remember an ATM of that, somewhere in Pudong airport.

You will probably cost yourself more in money terms than you will save. I have an Australian account and it cost me about USD4 to take out RMB2500 from an ATM.

Hi, I am not sure whether there is a China Construction Bank ATM at Pudong Airport, Shanghai, but it do has a branch of China Construction Bank there. Therefore, if you can not find a ATM there, you can try to the branch and get what you want, or just exchange some Chinese currency at the Bank of China, which I am sure do exist at every big airport. Hope this would help you!

It has been confirmed that there is no CCB ATM at Pudong airport. Therefore I now have a Fidelity Investments mySmart Cash account. Their ATM card works on all Visa, Plus, and Interlink ATMs around the globe, and they "refund" any and all ATM fees charged. To test the system I withdrew $100 locally, was debited $103 and immediately credited with $3 that same day. They have assured me this is true globally. Some other people out there may benefit from this.
Thanks for all the responses.

Strange, I thought I withdrew money a few times from a CCB ATM machine located somewhere between exits 5-8 on the arrival (ground) level at the Pudong airport (across from the lines of hotel accomodation counters). Visa has very stiff exchange rates so you save a few $ for ATM cost but pay a fortune for the exchange.

Re: China Construction Bank ATM at Shanghai/Pudong?

by Chico53

A friend in Shanghai actually called CCB and they said that they did not have an ATM at Pudong airport, Polartraveller. I am also not sure how you get a better exchange rate than Visa's wholesale rates. Granted they have have "enhanced' their rates compared to what they used to have, and charge 1% for themselves. If you know of a way to get a better rate please share the details with the rest of us. I have not seen anything better.
Thanks.

Can't say I ever get cash using any visa or other bank cards other than my HSBC ATM card. As long as I keep a certain level of deposit in my account I do not pay any bank transaction charges - worldwide.

Or I just take cash and my passport into the local bank to exchange for RMB (or some "selected" corner stores which do not even require my passport or any ID).

Perhaps got confused between Construction Bank and Communications Bank? Their logos do look quite similar.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Fabric shopping for the fashionista

by xiao about Dongjiadu Lu fabric market

This market features hundreds of stalls selling bales of fabric at ridiculously low prices, from traditional Chinese silk and Thai silk to cotton, linen, wool, and cashmere, though the heavier fabrics are only carried during the colder months. Many stalls have their own in-house tailors who can stitch you a suit, or anything else you want, at rates that are less than half what you'd pay at retail outlets. Tailoring ain't fantastic but if you bring a sample, they could make the same copy. Turnaround is usually a week or more.

Open daily from 9am to 5pm. Getting a taxi out of the market area at 5 is extremely difficult, try to leave earlier or much later. You can make anything, even lycra, shimmery dancewear for your tango/belly dance class, bags and shoes.

Check out shop #107 for inexpensive Thai silk. You can get some at USD4 per meter. Do bargain. I got a queen size duvet covers and 2 pillow cases (300 thread) for RMB200.

If you can't read menu in Chinese...

by xiao about The Grape Restaurant

Recommended by Frommers as an "inexpensive place to eat Shanghai cooking, popular with expats"...i ventured on. The menu was in English (Yay! for a non-Chinese speaking person like me) and they have pictures too, so you can literally point to the waitress what you want. Food was tasty and the ambience was okay. Generally, it's a pretty interesting restaurant tucked at a wing of an abandoned Russian Orthodox Church.

Update on 18 Apr 2006: Am now living a stone's throw away from this place. Thus, it has become my regular dinner joint. Food is still cheap and good. If you can read Mandarin or can speak Cantonese, try the inexpensive Cantonese restaurant across the stress (next to Boona Cafe). Terrific food at terrific prices. Tofu and broccoli in crabmeat sauce.

Old Chinese City

by bellatrix

Shanghai's Old Town was the main Chinese district of downtown Shanghai during the colonial era (1842-1949), when the Westerners had their own enclaves (called concessions) nearby. It was encircled by a wall that came down when the last dynasty fell, in 1911. The old city wall, 8.1m (27 ft.) high and 4.8km (3 miles) round, dated from the 16th century, when it served as a barrier against Japanese pirates. It is considered the oldest district of Shanghai; its shops, the most traditional; its steamed dumplings, the best. Within this former walled city, the Old Town Bazaar is now a large pedestrian mall and alleyway labyrinth. Within its bounds are some marvelous attractions, including Yu Garden, the Huxinting Teahouse, the Bridge of Nine Turnings, the Temple of the Town Gods, the new Shanghai Old Street (Fangbang Zhong Lu), and hundreds of traditional Chinese shops (as well as many new stores).

St Ignatius Cathedral

by Willettsworld

Designed by English architect William Doyle, and built by French Jesuits between 1905 and 1910, this cathedral is said to have been known as "the grandest cathedral in the Far East." It can accommodate 2,500 worshippers at the same time. In 1966, at the opening of the Cultural Revolution, Red Guards vandalized the cathedral, tearing down its spires and ceiling, and smashing its roughly 300 square metres of stained glass. For the next ten years the building served as a state-owned grain warehouse. In 1978 the cathedral was re-opened, and the spires were restored in the early 1980s.
