Getting to the Congress Hotel:
There are 2 airports in Shanghai: The International Pudong airport and the Domestic Hongqiao airport.
Those who will be flying directly will most likely fly to Pudong airport which is closer to the Congress Venue. There are 3 ways to get from Pudong airport to the hotel:
It takes about 25-30 minutes off peak hours to get to the hotel. Peak hours are usually mornings 07:00-09:00 and 16:30-18:30. During peak hours it should not take more than 1 hour. Price range is between 100-150 RMB one way.
2. Maglev Train:
This is a bullet train that travels 400 km/h. It travels from the airport to the Longyang station (there is only 1 station) in 8 minutes. From the station it takes another 5 minutes by taxi to reach the hotel. Price for a one-way ticket is 50 RMB.
3. Metro line 2:
There is a metro line from the airport that will take you close to the hotel. You will then need to change to line 7 to reach the hotel. In total this can take you about 40 minutes and the price is around 5-10 RMB.
If you fly through another destination within China (such as via Beijing) you might land at Hongqiao airport, which is on the other side of Shanghai. Hongqiao airport is approximately a 1 hour drive off peak and between 1.5-2 hours drive during peak hours.
