Although it was our visit in Shanghai we took the subway everywhere. It’s easy to figure out and all the maps and directions are written in English and Chinese. There are 16 lines and each line is numbered and colour coded. Transfer from one line to another is very well sign posted and you just have to follow the colour coded arrows to find your way. You pay according to the distance and the pay machine gives you instructions in both languages. Being such a big city Shanghai has a lot of subway riders so be prepared for large crowds but it’s still quite manageable. Subway maps are available in all hotels and at the subway entrance. Happy riding!
