WHile returning , My schduled timings were 11:00pm from bangkok reaching Shanghai 2:30pm connecting American Airlined at 6:00pm. Now I have come to know thye China Eastern have cacelled this flight altogher for good. The new flight times aqre at 6:00pm reaching 11:00pm. Now I will taking next day American flight 6:00pm flight as I will miss my connecting flight on same day and will be stuck in Shanghai for 19 hours. My question is Do I need a Visa for this. Also Since I am travelling with 3 kids (infsnt 1 year) and 2 kids under 10, What do I need to do as China Eastern has not made any arrangement for overnight stay. Their Newyork office say to contact China office who never reply. I don't want to be stuck at airport for 20 hours. What Do I do make arrangements for overnight stay?

1. you don't have to apply for any visa just for transit in Shanghai less than 48 hours.
2. it is suggested that you book a hotel in downtown Shanghai in advance. The ideal hotel should be close to the Jing'an Temple, where you could take the shuttle bus Line 2 to and from the airport directly. And, it is also easy to have a restaurant for dinner in this region. I know one called Yunfeng Giant Hotel, jsut 3 minutes walking to the shuttle bus station.
