Shanghai Tour Planning

How many airports are there in Shanghai? Which one should I choose to book my flight?

The city has two airports – Pudong International Airport (PVG) and Hongqiao International Airport (SHA). If you are going to book a domestic flight, Hongqiao airport should be your first choice since it is much closer to the downtown area. If you want to book an international flight, Pudong Airport has a wider choice of flights.

I've heard there are several water towns near Shanghai. Which one should I choose for a day trip?

There are eight ancient water towns with somewhat similar landscapes near the city. The tranquil and less-touristy Xitang and Tongli give visitors a better experience. Both of them are around 1.5 hours drive. However, if you like a more bustling atmosphere, the more developed Zhouzhuang or Wuzhen, still hold irresistible charms and captivate tourists from around the world.

Can you tell me which tower would be the best to visit, Oriental Pearl TV Tower, World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower or Shanghai Tower?

Either Shanghai Tower or the World Financial Center is a good option. As the tallest and second tallest skyscrapers in China, they both offer amazing city views with symbolic landmarks including the neighboring Jin Mao Tower and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. For a thrill, the World Financial Center has a transparent glass floor at F100 for visitors to walk on and look down to the ground below.

I will stay in Shanghai for a few days. Which neighboring city can I visit and come back in the same day?

You can take a private day trip to Suzhou or Hangzhou by a high-speed train. The one way train journey to Suzhou takes only about 30 minutes, and around 1 hour to Hangzhou.

Both Suzhou and Hangzhou are quite different from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. Suzhou is known for its exquisite classical gardens, where you can enjoy a charming natural beauty, harmonious old buildings and rich local culture. Hangzhou, nicknamed “heaven on earth”, boasts great natural beauty and cultural relics. You will definitely be struck by the enchanting scenery of the West Lake, which has been listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2011. No matter which of the two you visit, you won't be disappointed by our Shanghai vacation packages.

Is it possible to take the maglev train to the airport instead of your private car?

Yes, we are very happy to arrange the amazingly fast maglev train for your Shanghai city tour. It is recommended to use the maglev if your flight arrives at or leaves from Pudong International Airport. Below are the maglev operation times.

Route: Longyang Rd. – Pudong International Airport (PVG)
From Longyang Rd.: 06:45 – 21:40
From Pudong Airport: 07:02 - 21:42; Two extra trains at 22:15 and 22:40 from PVG
Frequency: 15-20 minutes

I'm very interested in visiting the Disneyland. Can I add it into your private Shanghai tour itinerary?

The Disneyland is indeed an incredibly happy place, and you can certainly add it to any of our Shanghai local tour itineraries. To save your travel cost, we suggest you book tickets on the Disney Resort App, on the official website of the park, call 400-180-0000 or 86-21-31580000. Also, though it is not that essential to have a guide for the Disneyland, we are more than happy to offer private transfers to and from Disneyland for your convenience.

    It was a wonderful 2 days Shanghai tour. I was very satisfied because I not only saw the beautiful scenery of Shanghai but also tasted a lot of delicious local food. The two-day trip between the modern city and the quiet Chinese water town was a truly special experience. Highly recommended!

    I was very satisfied with 3 days Shanghai tour which had rich and diversified itinerary. I really liked to cruise on Huangpu River. The Bund was so busy and beautiful. The Shanghai World Financial Center proved that Shanghai was an international metropolis and its statue as the economic center of China. It was a very pleasant trip!

    I was very satisfied with the day trips from Shanghai. I traveled with my parents. We enjoyed the beautiful night view in Tongli Water Town and felt the quietness that especially belonged to the small town. The guide was professional and diligent. He looked after the elderly well and also help them with priority access to some attractions. We just want to express the depth of our gratitude to him. The tour was worthwhile with excellent quality and reasonable price!

    This 5 days Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou tour was far better than I had expected. I felt the prosperity of Shanghai, the elegance of Suzhou and the softness of Hangzhou. I was lucky to have a responsible and knowledgeable guide throughout the trip. He explained the famous stories and allusions of the scenic spots, which made me admire the profound Chinese culture. The journey was about culture and I also taste some delicious cuisines.

    The Bund and the Humble Administrator's Garden impressed me most during the 2 days Shanghai and Suzhou tour. The Bund not only had charming riverside scenery but the unique western and gothic architecture. I took the morning train to Suzhou by myself on the second day. Differing from bustling Shanghai, Humble Administrator's Garden in Suzhou was so beautiful and quiet. Strolling around it made me feel the unique garden aesthetics of ancient China. I took a lot of photos and shared them with my family. It was an unforgettable trip! ... More
