So many places to see and so little time. If you want to experience the best this city has to offer, add Jin Mao Tower and Xintiandi Style Shoppping Centre to your vacation itinerary. If you get the chance, swing by Former Shanghai French Concession and Nanjing Road Shopping District as well.

You can feast your eyes on fine artworks at Shanghai Museum, a renowned art museum to add to your list of cultural attractions. Like some more ideas? It's a privilege to have the chance to admire the many flowers and botanical displays featured at Yu Garden, an impressive private garden. But that's not all there is. Make time to arrange for a visit to Jade Buddha Temple, a serene house of worship.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Shanghai

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport bar and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Shanghai, follow these useful tips:

  • Security staff will ask to see your boarding pass and travel ID at the checkpoint. Put them in an accessible place, so they're all ready for inspection.
  • Take off your belt, jewellery and shoes before arriving at the airport security checkpoint. Items such as these are not allowed to pass through the body scanner.
  • Ensure your laptop and electronic devices are easy to reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine in separate tubs.
  • When it comes to traveling with liquids and gels, all passengers are permitted a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to store containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • The airport security will likely tell you to remove your shoes before entering the body scanner. Pick a pair that you can take off easily. There's nothing more irritating than having to do your laces up over and over again.
  • Some destinations have strict biosecurity laws. Think about where you're off to and whether or not you can fly with fruit and meats.

Flights To Shanghai

China’s “City by the Sea,” Shanghai offers adventures for every kind of traveler. The Huangpu River bisects the city: Puxi on the west side with its Ming palaces, and Pudong on the east with its impressive skyline. With a history dating back thousands of years, this mix of ancient and modern is sure to enchant. Grab one of the cheap tickets to Shanghai and maybe even a hotel near Pudong International Airport (PVG) to explore this city yourself.

Transportation From PVG

As sleek as its neighborhood namesake, PVG is a well-organized hub of transportation for the city; there is even a museum in Terminal 2. In a city as big as Shanghai, you are going to have no trouble finding something to do. The People’s Square—or the Green Lung of Shanghai—is a 140,000 square meter garden-style plaza that hosts a convention center, theater, and the city’s government buildings. A living history lesson, Yu Gardens is home to a 400-year-old Ming dynasty property that offers a quiet afternoon in an otherwise bustling metropolis. The Xintandi neighborhood bridges the centuries with historic buildings transformed into modern shops, restaurants, galleries, and bars. After you fly in, you have many options to get downtown, some of which can be included in your Shanghai vacation package. While taxis are the most convenient way to get around, rental cars are available and several different buses leave from the two airport terminals. If you want to start your Shanghai adventure right after touching down, take the Maglev train to Longyang Road transportation center at speeds closing in on 270 mph! For a safer rail trek into town, hop on the Shanghai Metro Line 2.

From Dynasties to Dining

Tens of millions of people and thousands of years of history are calling. Let Travelocity find you cheap airfare options on dozens of daily Shanghai flights; your Far East escapade is a click away.
