Cheap flights from Shanghai to San Francisco

San Francisco is a city that is full of life, which caters to those on business or vacation. The thriving metropolis is famous for its spirited attitude and overall diversity. With neighborhoods that include the Mission District, Chinatown and Castro, you’ll have a number of intriguing places to visit and many that align with your sightseeing preferences. From San Francisco International Airport (SFO), you can rent a car and drive to the Golden Gate Bridge in just 40 minutes. You can reach Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies in 35 minutes and arrive at Fisherman’s Wharf in only 45 minutes.

Key Facts

San Francisco’s major freeways include the 101 and 280. Both roadways connect in the heart of the city. In San Francisco, you must remember not turn right on a red light. Additionally, many intersections do not permit left turns, so you may need to make a number of right turns and go around the block to get to your destination.

Hints and Tips

You can expect your flight from Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) to San Francisco to last around eleven hours. Due to the natural topography of San Francisco, you may find yourself parking on a hill. If your car is parked uphill, be sure to turn the vehicle’s wheels away from the curb. When you’re parking downhill, point them towards the curb, and use the car’s parking brake. Also, if you wind up driving in the famous San Francisco fog, then reduce your speed and use caution.
