HongKou Introduction

Hongkou District is situated by the northeast of downtown Shanghai, bordering o­n Yangpu District o­n the east, Zhabei District o­n the west, Pudong New Area and Huangpu District across the Huangpu River and Wusong Creek (Suzhou Creek) to the south, and Baoshan District o­n the north. The district covers an area of 23.46 square kilometers, extending some 7.8 kilometers north-south and about 3.8 kilometers east-west, and a registered population of 784,000, with 10 subdistricts under its jurisdiction. The seat of the District People’s Government is at 518 Feihong Road.
Located where land and water meet, Hongkou District is convenient in transportation. Complete with Metro Line 3 and 4 as well as traffic arteries such as Sichuan Road (N), Wusong Road, Siping Road, Dalian Road (W), the Inner and Outer Ring roads, it’s easy to get around from Hongkou to many other districts in Shanghai. During the 11th “Five-Years-Plan” period, the Metro Line 8 and 10 and the Hongkou Football Stadium Transportation Hub Project will be done to further ease traffic. The Hongkou Football Stadium Transportation Hub Project will integrate transport functions with the development of service industries, which is destined to make Hongkou a key link in the future development of such industries in Shanghai.

HongKou 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.
