Coming into Pudong airport in the evening around 8pm, I did not want to hassle or haggle over price with a cab driver, so I decided to take the maglev train. The signage after you go through customs is excellent, so it was easy to follow the signs to the maglev -- just be sure to make the right turn when the sign points that way. Make sure you show your airline ticket for a 10 RMB discount (40 instead of 50). At almost 200 mph, it was a smooth and quick 5-6 minute ride to Longyang station, where it was again easy to follow the signs and cross over to the metro. For English speakers, you can press the English button on the kiosk to make it easy to purchase your ticket -- just select the station you're going to and make sure you have cash (get it at the airport if you need it). It was just another 10-15 minutes (5 stops) to the Pudong station (Lujiazui) -- for less than $1 -- which lets out right at IFC mall. The Ritz Carlton is attached to the mall (lots of signage in the mall), and the Shangri-La hotel is across the street. Other Pudong hotels are nearby.
