Shanghai Pudong Airport

by mo2106

Hi,

Does anyone know id Shanghai airport (Pudong) has any good facility to spend 8hrs trangit time? Are there many shops to have a look? What time do they close? If you could also advise me how I can get out of the city from there during this limited time there, it would be much appreciated....

Thanks so much!

Re: Shanghai Pudong Airport

by crewrower

Mo -

The Pudong airport (PVG) in Shanghai is clean and modern, but a TERRIBLE place to hang out. There are no TVs, and the most interesting hang out in the whole airport is a KFC (which is very hard to find). Shopping is virtually non-existant.

The good news is is that you can get into the city and have a good look around in 8 hours. I suggest you take the magnetic levitation train (maglev). If you are holding a flight ticket for the current day, you can take the maglev round trip for RMB80. It gets up to 431km, so it is an experience in itself! Anyway, take the maglev to Longyang Rd. station (maglev only makes this one stop, so it's easy). At Longyang Rd., take the subway to "Lujiazui" station. In Lujiazui, you are in the heart of new Shanghai, and can spend the time by going to the top of the Pearl Orient TV tower (panaromaic views of Shanghai), or the top of the Jinmao Tower (observation deck on 88th floor, also great views of Shanghai). You can get lunch and do some shopping in the "Zheng Da Guang Chang", one of the largest shopping malls in China. In Lujiazui, you are also very near the Huangpu river, and can get a great glimpse of the "Puxi" side of Shanghai and its colonial architecture.

After spending about 4 hours in Lujiazui doing the above, you can get the subway and maglev back to the airport.

I've lived in Shanghai for 4 years and think this is the best possible way to use your limited time in the city.

I totally agree to what crewrower suggested!

8hrs are enough to see some major sights!

Not if you don't already have a China visa though. I'm not sure if they're still issuing any transit visas, nor do I know if you'd be eligible for one.
What time is your transit?
There's a hourly hotel there, and a Motel168 (rooms start from about 300+ RMB for a night, not sure if they have hourly rental) right outside as well.

Thanks so much!!! I would be arriving in Shanghai around 16:00, and my flight from there to Rome is around midnight... would it be safe for me to do this as a girl alone? I am more interested in old Chinese scene rather than the modern....any idea???


Thank you once again,
Mo

Yes, safe to travel alone.
However, PLEASE check if you have a China visa, or if you would be eligible for a transit visa. Otherwise there's really no point anyone giving you any more suggestions!

Travel Tips for Shanghai

An odd tip (more of a warning!)

by jono84

There are many things i adore about bustling Shanghai, but this is not really the reason for me writing this tip. This picture (of yours truly) reminded me of the amount of times people stared at me all the time i was either sat on public transport, or just walking along the street. People are fascinated by the fact you are different.

This would not have surprised me normally, but a friend from the hostel i was staying in told me that many people you see in Shanghi are experiencing their first time in the city - and therefore almost certainly their first time to see a foreigner. Shocking! Its a point that i completely didnt think about.

This picture was actually taken by a friendly chinese family, who took it in return for me posing with their young son in a photo. They were so happy to have a photo with me in it! I can safely say it will probably be the first and last time (bar my mum) that someone wants to have a photo of me especially!

A need for silk, cotton or some other cloth?

by ZenLady34 about DongJiaDu Cloth Market

If you want to buy cloth; silk, cashmere, satin or something completely different, go to DongJiaDu cloth market. There are several dozens of stalls selling all the colours and materials you need to make the curtains in your living room, a suit for your husband or bedclothes to your bed. The whole street is full of cloth shops and stalls but the actual hall of cloth stalls is are near at the ZhongShan Rd and DongJia Du Rd's junction on the left side. UPDATE 24APR 2006 on Shanghai Forum was said that this place has moved to It's 399 Lujiabang Lu. Near the old location.

The shopkeepers speak a little English, but pocket calculator, pen and paper and gestures usually convey the message. There are tailors that can make you the item you want with the material you want by your instructions. A word of warning: check the quality of the tailor in beforehand if possible. Also Check the material every time you buy something.

Stall number 53 had (year 04) had a good tailor (kitchen curtains) but another stall (living room curtains) was not good (patters printed on the cloth did not match in the pair of curtains I bought...so ALWAYS check the quality!) Cloths! Just an example: I paid for a metre of pure silk 55 yuan. Yes, it required a lots of bargaining.

58% alcohol!!

by conniechong about Dong Bei Ren

The warm welcome from the waiters and waitresses let you feel like coming home. Should try the 'Wu Gu Cha', a northern China's special kind of tea or dare to challenge your stomach with the local spirits up to 58% of alcohol! The most interesting part is, when they serve you the main course with a pot of steamboat, at least 2 waiters will greet you in a very unforgetable way. Do surf their web at www.dongbeiren.com.cn Try all in a whole week if you aren't a Muslim. It's worth dining.

Skyline

by nepalgoods

Today Shanghai is welknown for its modern highrise buildings. When you stand at the Bund, where the first skyscrapers were build 100 years ago, and look across the Huang Pu River you'll see the towers of modern Shanghai.

I tell you: they did not exist, when I was in Shanghai 1991. Therefore this picture is from VT-member tini58de, who visited Shanghai in 2001. Please see her fantastic Shanghai-page for more!!

Well, I have been in Shanghai again in 2005. Here you find my pic of the skyline to compare it with Christine's from 2001.

SHANGHAI - CITY ABOVE THE SEA

by ancient_traveler

Formerly an unimportant fishing village, Shanghai (translated literally, "on the sea") is one of the world's largest seaports and a major industrial and commercial center of China. Shanghai is split in two by the Huangpu River, with the older town on the west bank known as Puxi and the brash new development on the east side being Pudong.

Praised as the 'Paris of the Oriental', the metropolis is displays a beautiful synthesis of both modern and traditional Chinese features. Nowadays, Shanghai attracts millions of visitors both from within China and abroad with its historical relics as well as its wide range of modern entertainment.

Since first opening to the outside world in the 19th century (a result of the expansion of foreign nations abroad) and, more recently, reopening to the outside world (after the period of upheaval of the Cultural Revolution), Shanghai has become China's most energetic and cosmopolitan city. Today's Shanghai is a multi-cultural metropolis with both modern and traditional Chinese features. Bubbling Shanghai shows off every aspect of her unique glamour.

Known as "the Oriental Paris", Shanghai is a shopper's paradise. One of the musts for tourists is Nanjing Road. Huaihai Road intrigues those with modern and fashionable tastes, while Sichuan North Road meets the demands of ordinary folk. In addition, Xujiahui Shopping Center, Yuyuan Shopping City, Jiali Sleepless City are thriving and popular destinations for those who are seeking to buy something special as a momento of their visit. A tourist city, Shanghai attracts travelers from both home and abroad because of its commercial activity rather than for its scenic beauty.
