What is best PVG lounge for *A J/F traveler?

Hi all!

I have a long layover and am considering whether to tough it out in the lounge(s) or go landslide for a hotel.

I arrive TG in J and depart UA in F so I believe I will have access to *A lounges. I also have Priority Pass.

What do PVG lounges offer? For that matter what’s in the airport itself that is fun?

Thanks!

For a proper (especially night) layover, get yourself a hotel, full stop (not just in PVG, but the whole world.. - a few F lounges maybe not included)

I’m a low maintenance kind of traveler, so I find the CA F lounge more than adequate for even an 8+ hour layover. The food is not bad either, compared to CA’s PEK lounges. But the sleeping room is probably most important, and I’d rather just use that than deal with the in and out logistics of check-in, immigration, etc.

added: In terms of word association, “fun” and “Chinese airports” would be some of the last, most far-fetched and nonsensical combinations I can think of.

Find a quiet corner near an empty arrival gate or a unused part of the airport. Get some instant noodles (those in the cups) a couple of beers and voila! Best lounge u can get - as any real lounges in Chinese airports are very much the same, except they often more dirty, have hoards of screaming adults (into their phones) and kids and are totally over crowded
