    For Asia it's decent. They are improving a lot. Lounge not so good. Highly recommend for cigarettes purchase as it is extremely cheap. Taxis are hard. Pre book car.

    PVG airport is the main Shanghai intl' hub. Well connected to the city via subway and maglev train. Quite far though. Land services tend to favor passengers of Chinese carriers (eg, lounges).

    For such a new airport, the choices are awful. The food is barely edible at almost all the restaurants, with few options. Security is always dirty, crowded and poorly managed. Shopping is also awful.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
