Dear T/A experts
We (3 adults) will be arriving in Shanghai on June 12th from Beijing via the Bullet train. We anticipate taking a train that will arrive around 2 - 3pm. I have contacted my hotel (Grand Mercure SHANGHAI ZHONGYA) to ask about the transportation from Hongqiao to the hotel. They have suggested taking a taxi, and suggested it would be around 80RMB.
My question is how easy is it to catch a taxi from the station or should we use the metro?
I have taken a look at the metro map and figured if we caught a train from Hongqiao Railway Station (Line 2) and changed at People's Square on to Line 1 and disemarked at Shanghai Railway it would only be 15RMB. Is the Shanghai metro easy to navigate? Or would we be more comfortable taking a cab?
Thanks in advance.
