  • Pudong Airport

    I wasn't sure how to classify this tip, so decided on transportation. Someone ask about the facilities at Pudong because they were arriving late, did not want to spend money for a hotel in the city for just a couple of hours, so wanted to spend thier first night in Shanghai at the airport. There's a bunch of restaurants and shops but I am not sure...

  • Hongqiao Airport Shuttle Bus

    If you arrive at Shanghai Hongqiao airport, definitely take the airport shuttle bus out instead of a taxi. The taxi queue is horrendously long, I've had the "honour" of getting stuck once for more than an hour, and once was enough!Airport shuttle to the CAAC office at Jing'an Temple (downtown Shanghai) costs only 4 RMB and a ride should take about...

  • Hide and Seek with the Metro

    Finding metro stations in Shanghai is a game of finding the metro sign. Once you know what it looks like (see photo) and why you want to find it (because it points to the metro station or indicates a station entrance), it's not that hard to find. Otherwise, you'll walk right by these signs without noticing them.

  • Get a Metro Card

    Using the new metro system is easy, cheap and convenient. With a smart Metro Card, it becomes even easier. It also makes taxi payment easier. The card costs 20 RMB. In any metro station, look for the Service Center. Give the attendant a 100 RMB note, nod and smile to anything they say (which will almost certainly be in Chinese). They'll punch up...

  • Public Bus to Zhujiajiao Water Village

    I prefer to go to Zhujiajiao by public bus instead of the tourist sightseing buses from Shanghai Stadium.For most travellers, starting from the People's Square area would be reasonable as it's centrally-located. On Pu'an Lu, behind Shanghai Concert Hall, are 2 bus routes that will take you to Zhujiajiao. The nearest metro stop to get here is...

  • Tunnel Across The River

    One way to cross the river is by using an underground tunnel, callled The Tourist Tunnel.The Tourist Tunnel cost 30-40 RMB, which is about 4 dollars, not real expensive.But there are other cheaper ways of getting around, so I'm not sugesting using it 4 or 5 times a day. It is an interesting trip to use a couple times to get to the Bund from the...

    Of all the cities I've been in, Shanghai is by far the cheapest city to move around in and the taxi fares are no exception.The minimum price for a taxi in Shanghai is 11 RMB, which is about $1.65. I have gone half way across the city for about 3/4 dollars. Other cities in China have different minimum prices. And this price is not per person, so...

  • Around Nanjing Road in a Trolley

    I mistakenly thought that the Nanjing trolley is for free just like the city circle tram of Melbourne so we boarded it. Then appeared a lady who collected from us 2 Yuan each. We rode the trolley one way and then walked on the way back. See me waving at my mom who took the picture!

  • Osaka to Shanghai Ferry

    I lucked out on this trip and had an entire cabin to myself. I did feel a little isolated at first but when we all woke up on the last day to discover the boat bobbing up and down in a circle of chocolate milk ringed with fog, the entire boat came together and bonded. There's nothing like being trapped on a boat to bring people together. And then...

  • Take a Taxi!

    Riding in a Taxi in Shanghai may have been one of the most exhilirating times of my life. Forget bungee-jumping, sky-diving or even zorbing... the real adventure lies when you allow someone who most likely will not drive within the rules of the general road rules through your journey.Going from our hotel to the Mexican bar was quite an interesting...

  • Charter Bus

    If you are there on a large group, I would highly recommend that you have a charter already organized. Shanghai is a very large and confusing airport, and most people I spoke to recommended that you do not try to drive yourself. There are several different options from the airport, including taxi or train.Bus transport seemed to be the best option...

  • Traffic in Shanghai

    Be warned that traffic in Shanghai is a killer, especially during the peak hours. Expressways and roads will become huge carparks, and it is a fustrating and long wait. Avoid the peak hours or take the metro (which is packed with people), but at least it is moving. There are simply too many vehicles in Shanghai, and more are pouring into the roads...
