How much taxi to the city center should cost from the Pudong International Airport

  • Depending on which part of Shanghai you want to go, the taxi from PVG should cost ¥180-¥260 ($26-$37) during the day and ¥200-¥300 ($29-$43) at night. Payment is by cash
  • Make sure to use the official taxis and make sure they use meters
  • It's not unheard of for tourists to get scammed by sketchy unofficial drivers that can charge as much as ¥900 ($130) for the trip
  • If you the meter is running up beyond the cost range above, don't pay the driver more than ¥300, take a picture of the driver's information on the back of his seat and tell him you'll go to the police. Some sophisticated scam drivers may use fake meters to make it look like they're legit but still charging you a ridiculous amount
