Bus terminal for Pudong Airport
Hi
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.

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.

You can take metro line 2 to Hongqiao Railway Station first, then take high speed train from there to Jingdezhen North Station. The last train desparts at 19:06 with around 4 hours on the way. It is suggested to book the ticket in advance.

The bus departs at 05:00, 08:50, 10:00, 12:00, 15:30, 16:30, 18:10, 19:00 and 19:10. It takes about 4-5 hours and costs CNY101.
