One of the world’s truly great cities, Shanghai is brimming with culture, history and excitement. Art deco sits side by side with modern, towering sky scrapers and a burgeoning arts and nightlife scene mean there is always something for visitors to do. Plus, there is world class shopping and cuisine to get your teeth into.
Except for a few of the chillier months, Shanghai is almost always teeming with tourists. Peak season is between May and October but remember that July and August can be stiflingly hot. September and October are perhaps the ideal months for a more comfortable visit but competition for flights and rooms at this time means it can be a little more expensive.

Given its size and sheer volume of people, using public transport to get around Shanghai is a must for any visitor. Buses, taxis and the subway system are relatively inexpensive but can be a little confusing at first and traffic can be bad. The subway features 12 lines with another 10 in construction and it’s a good way of covering longer distances. The city boasts around 50,000 taxis but at rush hour these can be difficult to find so try and plan your journey.
You need a visa to visit China so you will need to apply at the embassy or online before you travel. It’s important not to overstay the duration of your visa as you may be fined.
