For a unique experience, take the magnetic levetation train from Pudong to the airport. This is about a 10-15 minute taxi ride from Grand Hyatt, St. Regis or Shangri-La and the train itself takes but 8 minutes to the airport once you hit the 400 km per hour top speed. Fun.

get yourself a Shanghai Public Transportation Card (costs 30 RNB) which you can top up at most metro stations in Shanghai. It's a lot more convenient as you don't need to buy a single ticket each time you use public transport. It also works on buses and taxis

If you're on your own in Shanghai, don't forget to ask the hotel front desk to write down your destination in Chinese to show the cab driver since they don't understand English. Always bring your hotel card so you can show the cab driver where to bring you back.

A fantastic city for clubs, bars and nightlife.
Nothing too seedy and very minor underground scene.
Check out Laris and Attica, both near The Bund for fine cuisine, sumptuous drinking, dirty dancing and outstanding views. Nanjing Road at night is NOT to be missed.
Skip Xintiandi unless you're just starved for Euro-culture.
Everything there is over-priced and European.

Stop in at the House of Jazz and Blues at Maoming Lu for great live entertainment. The after-hours joint is JZ. (Just follow the HOBJ crowd).

Not a fan of the traffic, or the airport. Most recent trip through Shanghai had me at the airport 5 hours before my flight and I could not check-in until just over 2 hours before the flight. The airlines have specific aisles to check in for specific flights, so they are not open for check in at all times. Unless of course you are travelling via Shanghai Airlines, then there are many aisles of check-in oportunity.

I recently passed through Shanghai on my way to the nearby city of Ningbo . I landed at Shaghai Pudong and had to switch to Shanghai Hongqiao airports. At both the airports all the key signs were bilingual between Mandarin and English, whilst many of the staff spoke passable English. Furthermore there is a reasonable bus service linking the two airports, it costs about 30 RMB (at time of typing £1 = 13.25 RMB) and the journey lasted about an hour. From Pudong airport there are many other bus services which are also sign posted bilingually, such as to the central train station and to certain hotels and key areas around Shanghai .

Be sure to get a Chinese-style body massage (88 yuan for an hour at a relatively upmarket place in Pudong) or get a foot massage and pedicure (30 yuan onwards at a street parlour).
