    Terminal 1 is a broken mess. No ATMs past security so bring cash as card usage is spotty. Limited amenities, no climate control and the staff could care less of your existence it seems.

    Just figured out that it's not because there are loads of ppl in Pudong but how they managed the lines. If I can prefer T1 or hongqiao over T2 at Pudong. In there they know how to control the speed

    If you happen to travel with China Eastern and no online checkin available, make sure you get to the airport early. Like very early. It took us 4,5h to get from the checkin queue to the gate.

    Fr airport u can take the maglev (high speed train 45rmb/pax) or metro line 2(7rmb/pax-it take 1hours to People Square-central of Shanghai).Remember change the other side metro in Guanglan Road.

    Large big airport! The gates change and they may take you to the plane like Istanbul Atatürk Airport. I felt similar to each other in this way!

    Be careful when choosing your next transport to your next destination. An airport shuttle could cost up to RMB650 to go to Shanghai. Choosing local taxis can end you up with a long queue.

    For aliens ( Non-China ppl ), please be reminded to fill up your embarkment & departure form before heading to the immigration counters.

    Your lighter will surely be confiscated sooner or later. Don't worry! The airport prepares fixed lighters at each & every smoking room for your own convenience. 😅

    There is barely any expedited service for frequent fliers, and lounges are spread apart and not stocked well. There is a bus service from lounges to faraway gates on request.

    Competitive price of cosmetics in Sunrise duty free stores. Most products are even cheaper than Hongkong. Ask for express line for late arrival passenger in immigration and security check.

    The only airport in the world without convenience stores and fast food restaurants by the gates, only expensive sit-down restaurants, so be sure you bring your own food before going through security!

    Don't let its impressive size fool you and prepare for a crappy experience. Staff will misinform you or send you in the wrong direction if you even make it through the massive lines. Avoid if you can.
  • Luiza M.
    Worst airport ever! I travel like 7 times a year and the stress here I never had in any other airport! Just come here if you really need to!

    Free WiFi. Foreigners, make sure you have your yellow arrival and departure card filled out while on the plane. The customs process will go smoothly.

    Clean & modern airport. Taking the Maglev train gets you into town in about 7 minutes, but will cost you more than taking the bus or slow train. A taxi takes about 45 minutes.

    International transfer process is fairly strait forward. The departure wing could use a couple more restaurant venues but overall a nice airport for those connecting elsewhere.

    Seems the free WIFI isn't working, if you've got an international SIM card and not a Chinese mobile number.

    BEWARE!! Departures area full with scammers (iPhone bait + switch / beggars asking for ticket money). Police is aware but does not care as usual!

    So many bad things happen to me at this airport, permanent delays, slow wifi, and they may even force you to checkin your luggage at last moment before boarding.

    If your reading this then remember all shops and restaurants will be closed at 11pm. Make sure you eat something incase your flight gets delayed

    Take maglev train! Very cheap sunrise duty free, especially for Estée Lauder (one of the cheapest in the world)! You can buy 5% discount coupon for 1 rmb cent in taobao for this duty free.

    Our international flight arrived in T1 which has mostly domestic flights departing. Not a pleasant place to wait with few if any international shops or restaurants.

    China Unicom SIM cards can be availed right after clearing immigration. It's a must-have in Shanghai as all free wifi signals in the city require a Chinese mobile number as your username.
