I'm posting this evening to speak out against the Lujiazui idea. All too often, people mistakenly conclude that because LZJ is on the same side of the river as the airport, it is somewhere more convenient than points in Puxi. I used to live there (in Yanlord Gardens for those of you that know the area) and traveled to Zhejiang frequently on business. Simply put, I can not think of less convenient place to hail a long distance bus.

Furthermore, it is really only 5 minutes closer than Jing'an Temple, Xujiahui, Hongqiao Airport, etc. This is due to the nature of Shanghai's highway network. LJZ is isolated and prone to traffic problems. Don't get me wrong; I enjoyed living there, but I don't think staying there would do much for the OP.
