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.

There is a full-service restaurant on the fifth floor of the main building and numerous cafes and shops throughout the airport.

Airport Transportation in Kenya

A rail link is currently being built to connect the airport to Nairobi city centre so soon it may be an option to take a train to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You can currently chose to take a bus to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as there are regularly scheduled routes daily from Nairobi city centre to the airport. If you prefer to have more space or a more luxurious ride you can take a taxi to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Plan Your Venice Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Venice; we advise that you check the festival diary before you travel. Every odd numbered year Venice holds the internationally recognized Venice Biennale, from June to November, and Venice will fill up for this festival. A second key festival, in the third week of July, is the Festa Del Redentore, which involves bridge building, a gondola regatta, and fireworks.

In terms of climate the best visiting time is late spring and early summer when the weather is pleasantly balmy. However, at this time Venice is very crowded, especially on National Day, 1st May. During the spring festival of Carnevale the city positively throngs with masked revellers. We advise that you reserve your tickets to Venice well in advance at these times. The summer months can be stiflingly hot and humid. To find cheap hotels in Venice travel during the autumn and winter period from October to January.
