HELP made a mistake!!!

by soapsud

My inlaws are arriving of an Interntational flight at Pudong airport snd I have then booked them onto a domestic flight to Ningbo I did not check which airport the connecting flight was to leave from, and now realise that the airport they are flying out of is Hongqiao airport. The international flight gets in at 08:45 and the Ningbo flight departs at 11:30. My question is how do I get them to the other airport? what would be the Quickest way. 1.Should I suggest the Levitation train and then a taxi at the other end.
2.A taxi all the way
3. An express bus
They are not that familar with Pudong airport and have not been to Hongqiao airport before

Having never taken the elevated train before, I would say a taxi all the way. I dont know how close the last stop to HongQiao Airport is though and how easy it would be to get a taxi from there? It usually takes about 45 mins by taxi from downtown to Pudong and about 20mins from downtown to Hongqiao, but youre talking about rush hour times, so of course things could be drastically different.

I hope someone comes up with some good advice for you.

>1.Should I suggest the Levitation train and then a taxi at the other end.

If you are going to take the taxi from the levitation train. I would skip the levitatio train and take the taxie from the airpot.

I don't know if the bus or taxi would be faster but I'll bet the taxi would be faster. No need to wait for the bus depuarture time if you take a taxie. I also also think the taxi will be faster then the bus if they leave at the same time.

Taking a taxi is the only way unless the flight arrives earlier and they could catch the airport shuttle to Hongqiao Airport on or before 9:00.

Taxi .

I have used both airports quite a lot. Here are three words of advice: TAXI TAXI TAXI. It will cost you plenty, maybe 200 RMB but it's better than a nervous breakdown or, worse yet, a bus breakdown.

If you had an extra hour (can't you change the flight?) I'd say airport shuttle bus number 5 to Zhangshan Park (30 RMB?), and then taxi (20 RMB?) just to save money. But forget the Maglev (40 RMB). It's out of the way, no time savings for your route, waste of money.

Ooops, my bad. I notice now you said "inlaws". TAXI TAXI TAXI. Nothing else to say.

A Good Indonesian in PuDong

by MaosRedArmy about Lagun Sari

Since I live in PuDong, it is always nice to find a restaurant within walking distance. Lagun Sari is a good Indonesian restaurant on PuDong Avenue (PuDong Da Dao), a half of a block up from the Novotel Atlantis Hotel.

Since there aren't any Indian restaurants on the side of the river (at least none that I have come across), if I am in the mood for some curry, I now have a respectable option that does not require anything other than me and my two feet (as well as a some RMB). We had the Chicken Curry, Mee Goreng (noodles, veges, & seafood), Fried Prawns with Oyster Sauce (small shrimp, not prawns by any stretch).

For something a little different (if you like tofu) try the Tahu Telor, tofu drizzled with a sweet and tangy pineapple and peanut sauce (have them cut it up for you otherwise you will have to deal with the large mound with chopsticks alone).

Jade Buddha Temple

by traveloturc

In the western part of Shanghai, there is a famous Buddhist temple, Jade Buddha Temple. In 1882, an old temple was built to keep two jade Buddha statues which had been brought from Burma by a monk named Huigen. The temple was destroyed during the revolution that overthrew the Qing Dynasty. Fortunately the jade Buddha statues were saved and a new temple was built on the present site in 1928. It was named the Jade Buddha Temple.
The two precious jade Buddhist statues are not only rare cultural relics but also porcelain artworks. Both the Sitting Buddha and the Recumbent Buddha are carved with whole white jade.

New in Shanghai

by dimpleye

There are still very few people have travelled to China, or even have some knowledge of China, at least from the proportion of travel lovers I met on my trips in Europe. To be frank, even I haven't been to most parts of China till now, but I planed to see China as much as I can when I'm back to China, and I really hope more independant travellers would come to China to experience a real different view and culture, instead of those "Beijing, Xi'an, Yangshuo" travel package. I bet you'll love it.

It's hard for me to decribe my hometown, I'll let you know details later when I have time, just found a travel guide article from NYT, take a look and you may have a general view first :p

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/25/travel/25shanghai.html?n=Top%2fFeatures%2fTravel%2fDestinations%2fAsia%2fChina

New is a relative term in Shanghai, a great metropolis that was condemned to an enforced slumber during much of the period that China has been under Communist rule.

That all changed in 1991, when the reformist patriarch, Deng Xiaoping, decided that Shanghai, long China's most cosmopolitan city, should be the showcase for the country's embrace of economic liberalization.

Scanning the futuristic skyline here, one can be excused for thinking that all is new in Shanghai. Indeed, nearly every one of the now seemingly countless skyscrapers dates from the last 10 years, as do the city's highways, subways and its glistening, stylish Pudong International Airport.

And amid the ballet of cranes that animates the cityscape there are constant additions worthy of a visitor's interest.

Even getting to the city is exciting these days. Travelers can literally levitate from the Pudong airport close to the center of Shanghai: roughly 18 miles in 8 minutes at a maximum speed of 267 miles an hour. The city's German-built magnetic levitation train, or Maglev, achieves this feat, and the Pudong airport's service, which was inaugurated in January, is the world's first commercial application of this technology. (Fare is $5.90 each way, at 8.45 yuan to the dollar, and the train departs every 20 minutes.)

The Bund, the sweeping downtown riverfront, draws many tourists with its string of unusually elegant and often carefully renovated or preserved buildings that date from the early 20th century, the peak of Europe's imperial penetration of China. Across the Huangpu River, in stunning contrast to the stately European-era structures, the city's most fantastic skyscrapers loom. The gaudily playful 1,535-foot-tall Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the 88-story Jinmao Tower (finished in 1998), which houses a Hyatt hotel with one of the world's highest hotel lobbies, are two that stand out.

On the Bund an ambitious art gallery, Three on the Bund, opened in January, a dramatic viewing space for modern Chinese art. Housed in the century-old former Union Assurance Company building, the gallery is classic Bund gravitas on the outside, but its interior has been imaginatively redesigned by the architect Michael Graves, including a dramatic atrium-like space that reaches skyward with a collection of gilded columns. The building, open daily, also contains restaurants, a health spa and premium shops. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; (86-21) 6321 5757, www.threeonthebund.com.

Dinner choices in Shanghai are difficult only because the options are so numerous. Darling Harbor, 855 Pudong Nan Road, 3F, is one choice because the baroque d├ęcor so matches the florid extravagances of Shanghai. The restaurant, in the midst of Pudong's skyscrapers, is done up with faux Louis XIV drapes, chairs and paintings decorating a vast dining area, with a large open floor full of tables of boisterous diners and numerous semi-private rooms. The food, a light, less spicy version of Sichuan, is surprisingly good. Meals average $6 a person.
