Shanghai Hotels

The closest airport is the Springfield-Branson National Airport. It receives flights from 12 major cities all over the US, making it easily accessible, though connecting flights will be necessary for international visitors. From the airport, there are several taxi and bus shuttle services available to the town of Springfield and the surrounding area. Taxis will go to Seymour and other destinations. A better option may be to hire a car, especially since it is almost impossible to visit many of the attractions without a car. The journey from the airport takes just under an hour to both Seymour and Branson.

Things to see

The best place to begin to understand Shanghai is on the Bund. This waterfront stretch along the river is lined with colonial buildings, reflecting classical Western architecture. But just across the water, the view is iconic Shanghai: the illuminated skyscrapers of the business district are dominated by the Oriental Pearl Tower, with its 2 ‘pearls’. Ascend the tower for panoramic views all the way to the Yangtze. There’s even a revolving restaurant if you want to appreciate the views over lunch. Join the throngs at the Yuyan Gardens, a beautiful space full of shining pools, traditional pagodas, and blooming flowers and discover Shanghai’s history at the free central museum. To escape the rush, visit Zhujiajiao Water Town, where you can admire the traditional architecture on a leisurely boat ride along the canals. Later on, take a break at a 24-hour tea house, offering a calm, civilized atmosphere, even at 3am.

Hotels in Shanghai

Shanghai has some of the most opulent, extravagant hotels in the world, so if you’re looking to stay in luxury, you’re in luck. Many are housed in the upper floors of Shanghai’s skyscrapers, meaning that your grand suite will afford spectacular city views, while providing subtle, technological touches to provide a superb stay. If you are looking for a budget stay, there are cheaper hotels in Shanghai, with chic furnishings and traditional Chinese touches, which give a different perspective on this eclectic city.

Where to stay

The central area of the Puxi district is a good place to stay to be close to the main cultural sights of Shanghai, including the People’s Square and the Shanghai Museum. The Najing Street is also located here, and the whole area is surrounded by hotels, ranging from high-class to budget. Alternatively, you could stay in one of Pudong’s skyscrapers, for outstanding views and luxury, with plenty of restaurants, bars, and riverside parks to explore in the area. If you’re on a tight budget, head out towards the university area, where you’ll find cheap hotels and a laid-back, youthful atmosphere.

How to get to Shanghai

Pudong International Airport is the main Shanghai airport, receiving the vast majority of visitors. It’s located 40 kilometers east of downtown Shanghai, but that distance is nothing for Chinese trains; the high-speed Maglev train takes just 8 minutes to reach Longyang Road Station, and from there a short subway ride on Line 2 will transport you to the central People’s Square. It’s also possible to make the whole journey on the subway Line 2. If arriving from elsewhere in China, you may arrive into the Hongqiao airport, 13 kilometers to the south. It is connected by the same subway line.
