What to do for 6 hour transit?

by akikonomu

Dear VTers

I'll be transiting in Shanghai Pudong between 6pm and midnight and was wondering what I could do during this time. Is it worthwhile to leave the airport to go downtown and would there be any problems trying to get back in time for our flight?

You can go to downtown Shanghai by Transrapid and back in this time. And just walk around on the Bund and have a look at Pudong.

There is fastest train in the word going from Pudong airport to Shanghai city in 8 min. To go to city centre will take another 15 min by metro.
So lets say in 30 min max you can be in city centre and do some sightseeing.

Otherwise there is a some restaurants and hourly hotel in the airport you can have some rest between flights

If in transit and want to go into the city, remember that you need the very expensive China Visa, leave thirty minutes each way for passport control. Cheers Tommy x

Most of the people don't need visa for 24 hours transit.

I did the transit for 18 hours there and didn't apply for any visa

It is worth seeing the lights of Pudong from The Bund and eating at one of the many restaurants.

The immigration officials at the airport do have the power to grant a 24 hour "stay permit" but it may be a bit risky relying on it especially if you come from either the US or France which seem to have the most restrictions on visas.

Just noticed you come from Singapore. if you travel on a Singapore passport I don't think you need any visa in China. I think 6 hours would only just be enough to visit the city itself.

Thanks everyone - think I've got some ideas on what to see during the transit.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Duolun Culture Street

by cheezecake_deli

Duolun Road in Hongkou district, north of Suzhou Creek, was home to many of Shanghai's most famous left-wing writers and intellectuals in the 1920s and 1930s. During this time, the road was just outside the formal boundary of the International Settlement, and between 1932 and 1945, under the de facto Japanese military occupation. Consequently, many left-wing writers who lived here felt fairly safe from persecution by the Guomindang government at that time. The road has now been pedestrianised, and most of the historical buildings along it preserved. Some of the more interesting one are: a French-style mansion at no. 145 where the League of Leftist Writers was founded in 1930; the former residence of HH Kung (Finance Minister during the Guomindang government) at no. 250; and the Old Film Cafe at no. 123.

Duolun Road is off Sichuan Bei Lu (Sichuan North Road) in Hongkou. The nearest metro is Dong Baoxing Lu on Line 3.

By Train...

by Tal_A

By Train -------------------------------------------
Shanghai is connected to many destinations in China by direct train. The Shanghai Railway Station (303 Moling Lu) is in the northern part of the city. Several trains a day run to Suzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and other nearby destinations. The best train to catch to Beijing is the overnight express that leaves around 7 PM and arrives in Beijing the next morning. An express train also runs to Hong Kong.
You can buy train tickets at China International Travel Service (CITS; Guangming Building, 2 Jinling Lu, tel. 021/6321-7200), but they charge a service fee. Same-day, next-day, and sometimes third-day tickets can also be purchased at the ticket office in the Longmen Hotel (777 Hengfeng Lu, tel. 021/6317-0000) on the western side of the train station. For 24-hour train information, call 021/6317-9090.

EXPO 2010

by dennisthetraveler

The biggest World's Fair ever is worth visiting but you should be prepared and learn before you go to avoid the lines. I have created 2 hours of videos filled with info about it on my web site that will inform you about what is there and help you get the most out of the trip.

People's Park

by cheezecake_deli

Just north of the concrete mass of People's Square is the pleasant People's Park, one of the larger parks in central Puxi and fairly typical of Chinese parks. It has a central lake, winding paths, a formal garden (with a couple of swings for adults!) and a children's playground. At weekends, the northern entrance of the park (by Nanjing West Road) becomes a meeting place for anxious Shanghai parents trying to match make their children - I only observed from a distance in case I inadvertently got sucked into a date/engagement/marriage.
