Shanghai Circuit, Shanghai

4.4
A motorsport race track, Shanghai Circuit hosts the annual Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix. Futuristic and designed to maximize spectator excitement, the track provides an enjoyable race viewing experience. If you visit outside racing times, take a guided tour to learn about the track and soak up the atmosphere--it's worth it even if the guide speaks little English. As you're waiting for the tour to start, grab a coffee and pick up some souvenirs at a small shop there. Get behind the wheel yourself at the go-karting track on site.

  • The whole shape of the race road is like a dance of the "Up" word. It is advantageous to the high speed race road which the big horse force engine plays, but also has the challenge, the full body juggle technique's curved path. Apart from sharing some of the F1 games, you can also do different kinds of races (some of the other tournaments are slightly changed).

  • Wonderful formula 1 race, but the circuit needs some help. Screens are not HD, very little live track information and positions. Only four food tents for the whole main grandstand.
  • One of the most Entertaining Formula 1 Circuits.
  • like serigo perez is very good on tristy corners and long stratits
  • Serious issues getting in and huge queue everywhere. Could be improved easily.
  • Really enjoyed seeing all that I did, though want able to enter the team buildings. No English version so bring a translator app on your phone.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
