China’s “City by the Sea,” Shanghai offers adventures for every kind of traveler. The Huangpu River bisects the city: Puxi on the west side with its Ming palaces, and Pudong on the east with its impressive skyline. With a history dating back thousands of years, this mix of ancient and modern is sure to enchant. Grab one of the cheap tickets to Shanghai and maybe even a hotel near Pudong International Airport (PVG) to explore this city yourself.
As sleek as its neighborhood namesake, PVG is a well-organized hub of transportation for the city; there is even a museum in Terminal 2. In a city as big as Shanghai, you are going to have no trouble finding something to do. The People’s Square—or the Green Lung of Shanghai—is a 140,000 square meter garden-style plaza that hosts a convention center, theater, and the city’s government buildings. A living history lesson, Yu Gardens is home to a 400-year-old Ming dynasty property that offers a quiet afternoon in an otherwise bustling metropolis. The Xintandi neighborhood bridges the centuries with historic buildings transformed into modern shops, restaurants, galleries, and bars. After you fly in, you have many options to get downtown, some of which can be included in your Shanghai vacation package. While taxis are the most convenient way to get around, rental cars are available and several different buses leave from the two airport terminals. If you want to start your Shanghai adventure right after touching down, take the Maglev train to Longyang Road transportation center at speeds closing in on 270 mph! For a safer rail trek into town, hop on the Shanghai Metro Line 2.
Tens of millions of people and thousands of years of history are calling. Let Travelocity find you cheap airfare options on dozens of daily Shanghai flights; your Far East escapade is a click away.
Airfares offered on Fridays tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2019. Purchasing your airfares on a Monday or Tuesday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Saturday. Our data shows, the start of the weekend has the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals on a weekend.
Frequent travellers may already know this, but earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Tuesday are the cheapest of the week. Since weekend flights tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise which is why on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2019 were most expensive for Saturday departures.
Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 1-2 weeks prior to their travel dates.
