How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Hong-Kong:

The Airport Express is the quickest and easiest method of transport to get you to the city from the airport, taking around 25 minutes and running as often as every 10 minutes. The only other way would be to jump in a taxi outside of the airport but these can get very expensive, especially if you have a lot of baggage with you as you have to pay for each piece you with to take with you. If you’re considering a trip to Hong Kong then take a look at this detailed article and discover everything and anything about this magical city.

Shanghai:

The airport is around 30km away from downtown and there are a couple of options to choose from to help you get there. Firstly is the bus service. There are around 10 different airport buses that provide routes to the city; however buses in Shanghai can be very crowded and often difficult to understand without prior experience. Another option is the train which operates most of the day and only takes 8 minutes. It’s fast and hassle free once you’ve got your bearings of where to get off. Don’t get this confused with Subway Line 2, which also goes to the city but requires you to change over to a different shuttle during the journey. Taxis are another option and are relatively popular for travelling throughout Shanghai however you might find it easier to get to train to and from the airport and then rely on the taxis for any transportation throughout the city.
