Which airport? If it's Pudong then it's far from anything interesting. Probably an hour by taxi to qi pu lu.

If its Pudong airport ,the nearest shopping could be the cheap market at the basement of Science and tech museum,Xinyang market and A&P Plaza.You can take the metro to Science an tech museum or the maglev to Longyang and transfer to line 2 to the museum.

Otherwise the next decent shopping would be at Lujiazui which is about half hour ride by maglev and then transfer by line 2 to lujiazui.,Pudong.

THere is actually nothing of interest near your airport hotel esp for shopping.

Qipu lu market is across the river Huangpu and its still far to go.

To go Qipu lu market you need to take subway line 2 to Nanjing east road station and then transfer to line 10 to Tiantong lu station.Exit here to the market.

The Science and tech museum market is best reached by the maglev and then transfer by subway line 2 at the adjoining building .This trip only takes about 15 to 20 mins.Cost by maglev+subway is 40+4 yuan.The museum is quite enjoyable too.

By taxi from Pudong airport it will cost about 140yuan and takes about 35 + minutes.Its about 30-35km.

Not sure what is considered as "a nice place" for shopping. The S&TM market is a "fake market" and the qipu market is a "cheap market". Both are unique and good for killing time; but not really "nice"

For mega department stores and malls experience, take Metro Line 2 to the People's Square and walk along Nanjing East Road pedestrian street. Take a cab from there to the Yuyuan Old Town Bazaar and shop for souvenirs and handicrafts. What items are you shopping for?
