Shanghai cost and ease of taxis AND do we need a tour guide

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are going to China in March to adopt a child. We will be going to Shanghai with our 3-yr-old daugther for 3 days prior to adopting our Son in his province.

We will have a lot of luggage as it is a long stay in China with 4 people (up to 3 weeks). What would a taxi to the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Shanghai - Pudong 889 Yanggao Nan Road Pudong cost and would their be taxi/vans available to us and our luggage?

Our potential guide has proposed $160 for this transfer and I thought that was a lot. She recommended not grabbing a taxi from the airport because there could be confusion with language barrier on getting to the right hotel.

Also, this is the stuff we want to do:

We want to go to the top of Shanghai World Financial Center because
we heard this is the best view. (is this the case?)

Also maybe Oriental Pearl Tower though I heard very long lines?

The Gardens.

Yu Yuan/The Bund - basic tourist stuff.

Zhujiajiao/Qibao looks cool.

Our 3 year old is a pro traveler and is ok with being on the go, but we want to avoid any long lines. Anything we should scratch out from above, or add?

We are pretty good travelers - have been to over 30 countries, but we want this to be EASY which is why we are considering a guide. Do we really need one? And are we on par with what we should be doing during our short stay in Shanghai?

Also is the hotel we have chosen a good choice for the things we want to do? We want to stay at a Hilton property because we have free rooms, and every penny saved helps with these adoptions! :)

Thank you so much!!
