  • Apr 14, 2011
A little far from the city center but most international flights arrive in this airport. You can take the Maglev train from the airport terminals if you're in a rush (8 mins ride to the city center of Pudong; if your hotel in Puxi, take a taxi from there, this way it will save you some 30 mins at the least). If arriving/departing domestically, the better airport to arrive in would be Shanghai Hongqiao Airport.
