Shanghai Introduction

Shanghai is called hu, alternate name shen, is the Chinese biggest economic center city, and the international famous port city with the extremely important status in China's economic development. Shanghai located at north latitude 31 ' 14 '', east longitude 121 ' 29 ''.  Shanghai is situated o­n the bank of the Yangtze River Delta, with East River in the east and Hangzhou delta in the south. Housing a population of over 16 million at present, it was o­nce a small town supported by fishing and weaving before the first Opium War. Late in 1990, the central government started developing the area, and has since became the well-known booming metropolis city.
Shanghai is China's most comprehensive industrial and commercial city . As a tourist city, it attracts travelers from both home and abroad by its commercial activity rather than scenic beauty.

Shanghai Traffic

Hongqiao International Airport in western Shanghai, about 15 kilometers from the city center, handles all international flights. By taxi, the trip from the airport will take you about 30 min. to an hour. A new Shanghai International Airport in Pudong opened o­n October 1, 1999, although is not yet fully operational.
The base fare for every taxi in Shanghai is 11RMB. For this amount, you will get virtually anywhere within o­ne or two districts in the city – if you never have to wait at in traffic, the fare will not increase for the first 3 Kilometers.  However, the stand-still time will affect the fare, so if you are stuck in traffic the fare will still increase faster than 3K.  The base fare rises to 14RMB after 11pm.

The cheap price of the taxis and their convenience makes them extremely popular.  This is especially the case in the winter and o­n rainy days, when a taxi is virtually impossible to come by.  If you are staying in a hotel and are desperate, I recommend calling your concierge and having a taxi ordered to your location.  This costs and extra 4RMB, and an additional 15RMB if you are traveling o­ne way from Puxi to Pudong (for the driver’s return) – but this would be completely worth it if you have no other choice! Also keep in mind that traffic can be horrible in Shanghai, so when you need to arrive o­n time, the subway could be more reliable.
