Airport prices in Shanghai may not be the cheapest but you can find pretty much all the major brands, plus a variety of Chinese cultural souvenirs, from loose-leaf teas to silk nighties and cuddly panda toys. For arriving visitors, don’t be waylaid by the official-looking suited attendants at the arrivals gate asking if you need a taxi.
A one-litre bottle of 12-year-old Chivas will set you back Rmb220, and a one litre bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label, Rmb192. Keep walking to the sign-posted exits where the official taxis are waiting.
