"Taxi Ripoff at the Pudong Airport" Shanghai Warnings Or Dangers Tip by gaolei

Shanghai Warnings and Dangers: 134 reviews and 80 photos

When you finally get out of customs at Pudong airport, you will be approached by a lot of very legitimate looking people and a lot of seedy characters that are all looking to get you in their taxi. Ignore them all.

Either take the Maglev to Pudong if it is running or stand in line at the taxi stand outside. The taxis at the official stand will run their meters and give you a relatively honest price. Remember, it costs up to 150 RMB to get from the airport to a hotel in the central part of western Shanghai, Puxi side of the city. Don't pay more than that!
