    T1 recently got good options to eat. After passing security, go straight to the section with Family mart, Korean restaurants n some dessert shops. Much better and cheaper than any other ones in here!

    family mart: you can buy drinks and foods cheaper than other places, for example for a Turkish guy after eaten some meat sparkling water will be really good, and it is cheaper than most of places...

    T1 opposite gate 12-14 is a 'Pure Fresh Chinese noodle'outlet. Amongst other things they have Corona Extra bottles of beer at 20 RMB. BARGAIN!

    They have Mochi ice cream here! If you haven't had it before, you must. Cross Gate 19-20 and look for the store on your left.

    There is a 'Subway' just across counter F now, get your sandwich or salad before going to your gate because there aren't many options for Western food on the other side!

    Do u know that there is no watch or any shop that sells watches or electronics sell batteries for watches? None at all. I must be so spoilt coming from a country with world's best airport.

    If you have a long layover here you can leave the airport & have a meal in town or stroll on the bund! (you have to exit anyways)

    Terminal 1 has seen changes lately and there are more options for eating after the security check near the boarding gates, including a Korean resto and two new western/Asian food restaurants.

    To get free wifi without having to receive an sms take the code from the sunrise restaurant board. Though airport wifi excludes Facebook and most other popular sites so good luck.

    The only good things about this terminal is there is a Family Mart here for cheap snacks and drinks. Also go to the departure gate downstairs for cheap cans of beer from the vending machine 🍻👍

    When purchasing items inside an airport they are usually more expensive, but I found the prices were above and beyond the regular inflated prices. Get what you can outside the airport.

    If you have a long layover take a ride on he Maglev train, it takes about 45min round trip. Only 8 minutes each way at 300+ km/h.

    T1 facility is older than T2, but it's improving now, I hope it will add more smoking area or room for smoker, so far only 1 near the gate 200, it's not convenient.

    Don't take lighters throught security check points or even in your checked lugagge. The are very well trained to find them and they them away

    Family mart through security but no decent coffee options. If you have 30 minutes extra you can take a free shuttle bus to T2 arrivals hall for a Starbucks fix.

    Go downstairs. There are Family Marts on the lower level. You can get some food and drinks at a reasonable price.

    If ur a smoker can smoke downstairs after security. They provide lighters thru a hole in the wall as China customs find all your lighters and confiscate them.

    Great airport for wasting your time. Flight got delayed most of the time with reasons that you can't ever imagine. Wondering who is in charge for managing the air traffic control.

    These Chinese are always taking opportunity to make money from foreigners. If you plan to change money at the Airport, be prepared to pay RMB60 for their commission!

    Free wifi, though it sucks that Twitter and Facebook are banned here. Btw, don't exchange currency here, the commission fee is ridiculously high.

    Now it's International transfer, so, if you are transit, you need not pass immigration and passport control.
