That flight arrives at PVG at a very unearthly hour .. but PVG is a great city, with unbelievable food. Not sure if the maglev to the city operates at that early a hour so you might want to find an arrivals lounge to freshen up before you head into the city.

Schedule for Maglev. Last train seems to be around 9.30.

I haven't found an arrivals lounge in PVG, could be wrong as I probably didn't look for it enough.

Some suggestions for day in Shanghai

a) Visit the bund at night and take one of those dinner river cruise
b) Go to buddha temple
c) Visit YuYuan garden
d) Go to Xintiandi for a drink
e) Walk along Nanjing Rd
f) Go up the JinMao building and Pearl tower
e) If you are interested in museums, the one in people square is a decent one (can't vouch for it as I've not been there)
f) If you are interested in some shopping, go to fake market in the Shanghai Science and Technolgy Metro station. Golden rule of haggling: Start at 30% and leave so that they call you back.
