Bus terminal for Pudong Airport
I'm staying in Holiday inn express Zhabei. My flight is at 12:15 P.M. on Thursday.
If I take line 5 to Pudong airport at 8:00 A.M., is it enough early? I'm afraid having big traffic jam.
And the bus terminal from hotel, is it walking distance from my hotel?
The bus terminal is in the south square of Shanghai Railway Station?
Thank you.

Answered by Justina from AUSTRALIA | Oct. 16, 2019 19:53

It takes around 1.5 hours on the way by shuttle bus line 5. I think the time is enough if you set off at 8:00. You can walk to the south square of the Main Railway Station to take the bus.
