At The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, cruise around town in one of its house cars. Three Mercedes sedans, a Mercedes van and a Jaguar make up the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s in-house fleet. Should there be an influx of guests wanting to use the car service, the hotel has backup vehicles. If you prefer taking a cab, a member of the staff will be waiting outside to hail one for you — and he’ll direct your driver where to go so you don’t have to fumble with your Chinese. Cabs in Shanghai are cheap and plentiful, except during rush hour (like most cities). In case you want to give public transportation a try, the luxury hotel is located half a block from Metro line 2, one of the most extensive, well-connected lines on Shanghai’s easy-to-navigate subway system.
