Arriving in Shanghai

Book your flights to Shanghai with Etihad Airways and get ready to discover a bustling modern city of contrast, culture and commerce.

Plan Your Shanghai Holiday

There are numerous reasons to travel to Shanghai. The diversity of choice covers theatre, shopping, sightseeing and cultural pursuits; Shanghai wants you to discover what it has to show. A heady mix of towering skyscrapers, an iconic harbour, and an energetic fusion of east and west, longstanding, and contemporary with a dash of modernity, is Shanghai.

The peak seasons in Shanghai cover April to May and September to October. The city can get very crowded, especially for the main attractions. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Shanghai several months in advance for either of these two periods. During the off-peak season temperatures can reach 35 degrees Celsius and the humidity can sometimes become a little over-powering. In the winter temperatures rarely exceed 10 degrees. Not surprisingly, these are the best times to find cheap hotels in Shanghai. The city is also significantly less crowded with no loss of spark or allure.

Interested in Shanghai? Consider Porto

Book your flights to Porto with Etihad Airways and immerse yourself in the old-world charm of one of Portugal’s oldest cities.

Plan Your Porto Holiday

Anyone interested in beautiful architecture and striking landscapes should make plans to travel to Porto at least once in their lives. The charming Zona Ribeirinha boardwalk will captivate you with its waterfront ambiance and quaint shops and restaurants. Get swept up in the breath-taking majesty of the Serralves Foundation, a priceless heritage estate consisting of a museum, villa, and gardens. Travellers craving activity can catch an exciting football game at the Estádio do Dragão, or tour the shops at Rua Santa Catarina.

Weather in Porto is generally temperate, with gentle, warm summers, and mild winters. While there is no bad time to visit, we recommend you book your tickets to Porto in the summer and experience the variety of unique cultural festivals in May and June. Alternatively, travellers may want to avoid this period in favour of smaller crowds and better prices, as cheap hotels in Porto will be easier to locate in winter months. Whenever you travel, don’t forget to visit the deals section of our website for all the best flight deals to Porto.
