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.

Airport Transportation in Bulgaria

Sofia Airport is 10 km from the city centre. The bus to Sofia Airport is number 84 and it takes about 20 minutes. It is economical, but you are required to pay for an extra ticket if you bring too much luggage with you. It’s better to take a taxi to Sofia Airport in these cases. A subway or train to Sofia Airport is expected to be completed in the near future.

Burgas Airport is located 12 km from the city. The bus to Burgas Airport takes 15 minutes and happens to be the number 15 as well. A taxi to Burgas Airport, however, is probably the most convenient option.
