ZhaBei Introduction

Zhabei District is a central district in Shanghai with a long history. Situated at the northern part of central Shanghai, it is o­ne of the nine central districts of Shanghai. Stretching ten kilometers long from north to south and three kilometers wide from east to west, the district covers an area of 29.18 square kilometers and resembles a rectangle o­n the map. With a population of 800,000, Zhabei District is o­nly 25 minutes’ drive to Hongqiao International Airport, 45 minutes’ drive to Pudong International Airport, and ten minutes’ drive to the central business district (CBD) of Shanghai, such as the Bund, the People’s Square and Nanjing Road. The Suzhou Creek which is the most significant river of Shanghai flows through the southern part of the district, forming a 4.1 kilometers long riverbank. Located in the middle of Zhabei District, Daning Lingshi Park, covering an area of 680,000 square meters, is the largest green space in central Shanghai. Known as the “northern gateway to Shanghai”, Zhabei District boasts an advantageous geographical location. The North-South Elevated Highway in the district links Hongqiao International Airport and Pudong with downtown Shanghai. The handling capacities of passengers and freight account for 45.4% and 5.9% of Shanghai respectively due to Shanghai Railway Station (for passengers) and Beijiao Railway Station (for freight) in the district. In addition, there are over ten long haul bus stations for passengers and 337 long haul stations for freight, handling 998 lines from Shanghai to eleven provinces and municipalities including Beijing, Guangdong, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu, accounting for more than 50% of the handling capacity of long haul freight of Shanghai. In terms of transportation within Shanghai, in addition to 187 lines of public transportation, eleven stations of Metro Lines No. 1 and 3 are in the district, amounting to 33.27% of the total capacity of public transportation in Shanghai.

ZhaBei Traffic

Hongqiao International Airport in western Shanghai, about 15 kilometers from the city center, handles all international flights. By taxi, the trip from the airport will take you about 30 min. to an hour. A new Shanghai International Airport in Pudong opened o­n October 1, 1999, although is not yet fully operational.

The base fare for every taxi in Shanghai is 11RMB. For this amount, you will get virtually anywhere within o­ne or two districts in the city – if you never have to wait at in traffic, the fare will not increase for the first 3 Kilometers.  However, the stand-still time will affect the fare, so if you are stuck in traffic the fare will still increase faster than 3K.  The base fare rises to 14RMB after 11pm.

The cheap price of the taxis and their convenience makes them extremely popular.  This is especially the case in the winter and o­n rainy days, when a taxi is virtually impossible to come by.  If you are staying in a hotel and are desperate, I recommend calling your concierge and having a taxi ordered to your location.  This costs and extra 4RMB, and an additional 15RMB if you are traveling o­ne way from Puxi to Pudong (for the driver’s return) – but this would be completely worth it if you have no other choice! Also keep in mind that traffic can be horrible in Shanghai, so when you need to arrive o­n time, the subway could be more reliable.
