"Pudong Airport to the City (and back)" Shanghai Transportation Tip by Patriquito

Shanghai Transportation: 277 reviews and 350 photos


If you arrive or leave from Pudong Airport in Shanghai, you should use the Magnetic Levitation Train (Maglev or Transrapid), where German engineering meets Chinese resolution. For 30km it needs only 7 minutes, and it goes 430 km per hour at its fastest, not even Michael Schumacher has this feeling. The train connects Pudong Airport with the metro station Longyang Lu. It costs 40 RMB one way if you have an airticket for that date. If not, they charge you 50 RMB.
