If you plan to visit the exhibition, here are some suggestions for the event: To minimize health risk, please wear face masks to the event. This is especially important not only due to COVID-19, but also as Shanghai’s winter season begins and its air quality drops considerably. This weekend, the Air Quality Index was mainly moderate and during some periods unhealthy, with a very high PM2.5 AQI, and a less worrisome PM10. During this week, I went to visit a friend in the outskirts of Hong Qiao where the National Exhibition and Convention Center is located as well as an airport, high speed train station, and transportation hub. The amount of traffic that passed through Hong Qiao as a result of all these amenities was staggering. If you further consider the surrounding neighborhoods, chaotic drivers from the highways into Yan An (the most preferred, central, and traffic intensive elevated roadways in Shanghai), and the increased population during the days of the event, accessing the exhibition center by car will be extremely difficult. This year, in an attempt to alleviate the situation for visitors during these days, the Shanghai government has decreed that all government organizations, public institutions (including schools) and social groups need to adjust their working days. Therefore, you should expect traffic congestion in the area. If you decide to access to the National Exhibition and Convention Center by car, make sure you go with enough time to cover traffic jam delays. However, our suggestion is to access the exhibition by metro Line 2 and get off at East Xujing Station. Be warned, there will be increased foot traffic to the exhibition, and this will subsequently impact the metro population as well. For fares and routes from or to your hotel, As we are suggesting you use public transportation, please be patient with the metro schedules. Shanghai has no travelling restrictions and people coming from the airport and train stations will concurrently join the metro lines.
