Shanghai SHA Airport Shuttle
Shanghai Airport Transfer Service
Placed on the west side of downtown, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport is the more relaxed of two airports in the city. Serving millions of passengers per year, you’ll want to get out of the bustling facility with a ride that can make you feel comfortable and safe, whether that means leaving it all in the hands of someone who knows the area, like taxis, limousines, and local personal drivers, or taking matters into your own hands with a private sedan, SUV, van, or bus. Whatever you choose, reserve early to enjoy China’s largest city the moment you land.

Shanghai Airport Shuttles
Home to a bustling atmosphere, beautiful architecture and friendly staff, finding your way through Hongqiao International is only half the battle. Make sure you’ve got a ride to escape the chaos by booking a shuttle with either area taxi cab or private sedan companies, both of which offer simple lifts to a variety of custom locales, whether it be a downtown resort or lively district.
Once you’ve got a ride to experience any corner of town, understanding what that corner of town has in store is the next step. Those heading to the western Xuhui District have a wide variety of riverside shops & restaurants, not to mention the massive Shanghai Botanical Garden. If you’re staying in the quiet suburban backdrop of the Hongkou District instead, look forward to a wide variety of posh cocktail bars and historic homes, plus a unique look at the old Shanghai Jewish community.
Keep track of every detail of your shuttle reservation to ensure everything runs smoothly, writing down important notes like pick-up time and location in your travel journal, or simply print out your confirmation email when it comes to you. With several floors in each terminal, it can also get confusing finding your way to Ground Transportation – feel free to ask help at over a dozen information desks, also going off the easy-to-use signs renowned for their simple directions written in English and Chinese.
About Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport
With a variety of shops & restaurants scattered across the main terminal, you’ll have plenty to keep occupied in the event of a layover. Grab something to drink at either Bricco Café or Tea House, while international fast food chains like McDonald’s and Starbucks are readily available alongside local eateries. Shops include countless duty-free stores perfect for getting cheap souvenirs and snacks quick, with unique Chinese specialty stores selling handmade crafts, art, and silk cloths compliment upscale boutiques from name-brand companies.
Surrounded by the attractions of the city’s west side, you’ll have even more adventures waiting just outside the airport, from family-friendly adventures waiting at Shanghai Zoo next-door to the exciting roller coasters at Fenglinxiaozi Happy World a couple miles west. There are also a wide selection of golf courses and parks around the facility designed to help business travelers seal the deal, not to mention countless neighborhood eateries that offer an authentic taste of Shanghai, one of the most beloved eateries being Lamesa Restaurant & Wine Bar for its mix of casual and fancy.
Make a day out of checking out all the coolest temples in town, starting with the northwest side’s Jade Buddha Temple, famous for its ornate interior and jade sculptures, afterward checking out the south side’s Longhua Temple, which dates back to the 3rd century. Compliment the ornate creations of man with a walk through the creation of nature, taking a stroll through Fuxing Park for a look at French-colonial gazebos, archways, and gardens complimented by pathways with towering trees. And no trip to Shanghai would be complete without trying the many local flavors across town, some of the most popular being Jia Jia Tang Bao and Shanghai Grandmother Restaurant.
