British Airways flights to Shanghai land at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, 19 miles east of central Shanghai. After your flights arrive, catch the Magnetic Levitation train, the world's fastest train, which will take you towards central Shanghai at over 250mph. Stretch your legs after a Shanghai flight with a stroll and dinner in Shanghai's lush People's Park, then raise a toast in fashionable Xintiandi.
Shanghai flights land directly east of Shanghai. Take the Maglev train to Longyang Road Metro Station after your Shanghai flight, then catch a taxi into central Shanghai. Or just take a taxi all the way. If you opt for a taxi after your Shanghai flight, make sure it's a legitimate Shanghai taxi and that the metre is switched on. Allow 90 minutes for the journey to Shanghai after your flights as airport traffic can be heavy. Whiz past the futuristic high-rises of Pudong district, across the river and past large People's Square, where you'll see the impressive modern architecture of the Shanghai Museum.
After your Shanghai flights land, enjoy one of Asia's most vibrant and exciting cities. Watch neon lights dance up and down glittering skyscrapers in Shanghai's city centre, and discover chic cafes and cosy Chinese restaurants in the French Concession. Wind down from flights to Shanghai with a cocktail on The Bund whilst gazing across to financial district Pudong, now a classic Shanghai view. Leave time before your return flights for shopping in Shanghai's designer malls, or have clothes made to measure at the fabric market. Escape the bustle of Shanghai with a massage at a high-end spa or from one of Shanghai's many blind masseurs, the perfect way to relax after a flight to Shanghai.
