How to Get To Shanghai From the Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal
Wusongkou is located in the Baoshan District of Shanghai, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from downtown Shanghai. Free shuttle buses connect the terminal to Baoyang Metro Station (Line 3), which take passengers further afield. Taxis and buses, including bus Nos. 51, 160, 508, 728, and 952, are also an option. Shore excursions often include round-trip transportation.
The official language of Shanghai is Mandarin Chinese. English is not widely spoken, so it’s best to have your destination and your cruise port written down in Chinese to show taxi drivers. The official currency is the RMB (or Yuan) and ATMs are plentiful. You can also exchange money at banks by showing your passport.
