We will be cruising out of the Port of Shanghai on December 25th. We arrive the evening before and would like to stay in a hotel that's nearby. All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Are you referring to the port in Baoshan? I'm having difficulty finding much.
Also, we arrive at at 20:00, would you advise staying closer to the cruise port, or closer to the airport?
What time do you need to be at the Cruise terminal on the 25th morning, There is very little around the Baoshan port (The other poster was referring to the down-town port) so you may be better staying near the Airport - Just be warned you will need to cross the river (Airport side to Baoshan port side) using the Outer Ring tunnel, this tunnel can be very bad for traffic - Many heavy trucks use this route and its only a 2 lane tunnel in each direction - one broken down truck and it's chaos.
With normal traffic you can do this journey in less than 1 hour by Taxi. but you should allow 2 hours just in case especially on a Monday morning in winter.Edited: 4:44 am, October 16, 2017
