Questions & Answers on Shanghai Metro
Asked by Susan from USA | Nov. 09, 2018 07:13Reply
How convenient is the Hotel Indigo on the Shanghai Bund to a Metro station?
I'm looking into hotel options for next Spring and one of them is the Hotel Indigo on the Bund. I would like to utilize public transportation as much as possible while I'm in Shanghai. How far is the hotel to Yuyuan Garden Metro (Line 10)? Is it a walkable distance especially with luggage? Is there a bus stop near by that I can take to either Yuyuan Garden Metro or Nanjing East Rd Metro (Line 2)?

It is about 4 kilometers and it is not a easy walkable distance. From the hotel to Yuyuan Garden, you need to walk about 10 minutes to Doushi Street East Fuxing Road. Then take the bus No.24 and get off at Old West Gate bus stop. Then walk about Old West Gate metro station to take the metro line 10. Then get off at Yuyuan Garden metro station. Then walk about 6 minutes to Yuyuan Garden.

Upon landing, it is advised to take metro line 2 from PVG to Century Avenue first. Then transfer to metro line 9 to Caohejing Development Zone, Exit 2. Afterwards, walk northeast around 700 meters to find the destination.

First, take the maglev and get off at Longyang Road. Then walk about 2 minutes to the metro stop and get on the metro line 2.
Then get off at Jiangsu Road where to transfer to the metro line 11 and get off at Shanghai International Circuit.
Then take the bus Jiading 70 and get off at Donghuan Road Bao’an Highway. Then walk about 4 minutes to the hotel.

There is no checkroom inside the subway station and there are the checkrooms in the railway stations or airport. Or you can put your luggage into the lockers in some supermarkets and take out before the supermarkets are closed at night.
