Fly from Phoenix to Shanghai

If you live in Phoenix and want to see what life is like in an Asian city packed with entertainment options, book a trip to Shanghai and take the light rail or a car to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). It takes 16 hours to fly from Phoenix to Shanghai, and you can relax on your flight so that you're ready to explore the city's numerous shopping districts and cultural sites.


The Huangpu River meanders through town, and along its embankments, you'll find The Bund. A walk along The Bund can give you a great view of the Jin Mao Tower across the river, and it allows you to look back and marvel at the European-style architecture of some of the buildings. Just west of this area is the Shanghai Museum, a place where you can easily spend a whole day learning more about the rich history and viewing national treasures. To see traditional Chinese architecture, visit the City God Temple. You can see tributes to deities at the temple, and you can explore the shops and restaurants located all around the main hall.

Hints and tips

You'll arrive at the busy Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG). From there, you can take a taxi, the Maglev train or the Metro into the city, where a lot of attractions and hotels are situated near Yan'an Elevated Road. In the summer, temperatures peak around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and they're often in the upper 40s in the winter.
