Shanghai from a cruise ship

We are visiting Shanghai on a cruise next February. We find cruise shore excursions very expensive, is it easy to explore on our own?

Very easy.

However, if you are not going to stay overnight or to come back again, you may take a tour to maximize your precious time.

Lots of people explore Shanghai on their own every day. So with some research it's pretty easy.

Where will you be docking? The biggest concern should be getting back to the ship on time as they will not wait for you if you are late but they may wait for the tours if those are late.

Baoshan cruise terminal is about 1 hour from central Shanghai's tourist areas. Taxis are very cheap and there are many waiting at the cruise terminal. You can see a lot of the sites from using the underground which you can get cheaply once in central Shanghai. It links well with the Bund, the World Trade Centre, the People's Square and Shanghai museum. Allow plenty of time to get back to the port from the trip if you go yourself in to Shanghai. Have fun!
