13 hour stop over

by oznztofro

Ok im going to europe in june flying on air china or something local.

On the way to europe there is a 14 hour wait inside the airport (boring and not worth entering china for a night)

on the way back home to sydney there is a 13 hour stop over. This gives me time to see Shanghai for that time.

I think there is a metro line to the cbd from the airport. Im sure its worth it instead of splashing out on a taxi. If there isnt a metro line im sure there is a better way.

im defenently going up the Pearl tower and seeing the Pudong skyline and walking through old streets. But im not to sure ewhat else. I like visiting ghinese gardens, old buildings, temples.

anyway i know all about mainland china PR visas. since im not entering china until July is now the right time to get my visa in the passport

all help will be apreciated

Get a multi entry visa and you can visit Shanghai both times. They are good for six months. The metro will take you right out into the bund, no taxi is needed. Visa is expensive though, but the first time there, you can do a dry run and check out the outside of the airport and the second time, you will have the experience of where to go and the forms are to be filled out.

There is also a two-entry visa available. It's about 1.5 times the price of the single-entry visa but it beats sitting at the airport for 13 hours :)

You can also take the maglev from the airport to Longyang station then change to the metro, if you're into fast trains. You can reach most of the sites you listed by metro.

I guess Yu Yuan is on your list? It is not really on the metro line (about a 20 minute walk) but taxis are really cheap there. You can also visit the Jing An temple, which is also on the subway line.

Thanks guys. I just prefer to stay inside the airport on the way to Paris cause I'm not sure about night travel around town and am not interested in staying a night in a room.

I got my application form for a chinese visa but the thing thaqt stumbles me is the sponsor for a single entry. I don;t know anyone in the whole of China so how can i answer this question.

I read on the chinese embassy website that i wouldnt need a visa if im just entering china and then leaving for 12 hours (since i hold an Ausralian passport

Australian, New Zealand, American, Canadian, South Korean, German, French, Dutch, Luxemburg, Belgian, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Austrian, Greek, Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish passports bearers do not need a Transit Visa (G Visa) if they transit via SHANGHAI and staying for less than 48 hours (going out of the airport is allowed).

Guess i dont need one anyway

The best is to get visa, for the sponsor just write down a hotel's name and its address. I did that all the time even I did not ended up in that hotel.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel - Who needs LSD ?

by MaosRedArmy

Welcome to Shanghai's version of the TWILIGHT ZONE.

If you want to take a "unique" ride in a plastic bubble car under the Huanpu River, then you have come to the right place!

This ride takes you from the PuXi Waterfront (the Bund) to the PuDong Waterfront area (or vice versa) and takes about 5 minutes.

The entire sightseeing tunnel is lined with flashing, strobing, and pulsing lights in all shapes, sizes and colors. I definitely think the person that designed this ride either a) loves to take pyschodelic drugs;. or b) is stuck somewhere in the 1960s; or c) both. I am surprised Hunter S. Thompson hasn't already written about this ride.

If you have children and want to keep them occupied OR if you and your buddies are loaded and want to kick up your buzz, this is for you.

One way ride = 20RMB
Round-trip = 30RMB

There are a few major highway routes in Shanghai. Such as the South-North Highway (Nan Bei Gao Jia) and Yan'an Highway.. You can take the same route by traveling on the ground level, but these highway routes are above the ground level. Speed limit is higher and also there's no stop lights on the highway. When you take a taxi, the driver will usually give u options if u want to go up to the highway or just stay on the ground level.. sometimes the distance can be much bigger if u take the highway route.. but believe me.. you still rather take that because the traffic, especially during rush hour is just horrible on the ground level. It can end up costing u more time and money, and sitting in annoying traffic noise.

THE ANCIENT CITY OF SHANGHAI.... What a contrast this city has. After a quick ride on elevated roads and after flying among the building on the high bridges of Shanghai, you arrive at the ancient city. It was like traveling through time.

Walk on its narrow streets and looking at the people browsing around is something you must experience.

Shanghai Monument to the People's Heroes

by sunnywong

Shanghai Monument to the People's Heroes locates in the Huang Pu Park once notorious for "Chinese and dog are forbidden". It reminds tourists of the past history. Three-gun-shaped statue stands in remembrance of the martyrs who died in the Opium War, the May Fourth Movement and China's War of Liberation. It is of great significance.
