Shanghai Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Shanghai is so populated that you might think it’s not for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s the most densely populated city in the world. However, thanks to the abundance of temples and gardens, you will still find places for quiet retreat and sanctuary within the metropolitan area. While you can certainly get around using public transit and taxis, rental cars in Shanghai offer you more freedom during your time in China.

From PVG to Downtown Shanghai and Beyond

Cheap tickets to Shanghai are your passport to a world of shopping, food, and historic monuments. The Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) is about 28 miles from downtown, and reachable by car in under an hour. Once you settle into the heart of the city, it’s time to start putting your travel itinerary into action. No trip to Shanghai would be complete without an obligatory stop at The Bund. This famous waterfront district lures in people from around the world with amazing skyline photo ops and eclectic architecture. You can also take advantage of free access to Shanghai Museum while you’re in the city, and religious sites like Longhua Temple welcome you to reflect and silently watch the monks’ daily chants. While there is a diverse array of attractions right in the city, car rentals in Shanghai open up the chance to take day trips to the likes of Chongming Island at your own pace. Take your time exploring; the top accommodations in Shanghai welcome you back to relax whenever you’re ready to call it a day.
