Shanghai Pudong International Airport will sport two new IHG properties when it opens its latest terminal complex. The hotels are the first internationally branded properties for the airport and include InterContinental Shanghai Pudong Airport and Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Airport. Both are planned to open a short walk from the arrival hall in 2024.
“IHG has been committed to the China market for more than 35 years, with our brands widely recognized among Chinese consumers for our global expertise and profound China insights. The Shanghai Pudong International Airport is one of world’s leading international airports, linking the gateway city Shanghai to the world. We are proud to be a part of the complex project, bringing two iconic brands as a flagship combo to a Chinese gateway airport. We believe that under the great collaboration of all parties, the terminal complex will become a name card of Shanghai and a model of modern airport complex worldwide,” said Jolyon Bulley, CEO, IHG Greater China.
“Shanghai Pudong International Airport…strives for high-quality development and good business performance while ensuring [the] safety of travelers and providing good services. We are delighted to introduce IHG’s well-known InterContinental and Holiday Inn brands that boast international branded standard[s] to meet the growing demands from more travelers. Seen as the extended VIP lounge of Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the two hotels will also improve our competitive advantage and fuel the delivery of our strategy to build an international hub airport,” added Jia Ruijun, vice president, Shanghai Airport Authority, and chairman, Shanghai International Airport Co.
The small colonial town of Valladolid in the center of the Yucatan peninsula is easy to see in a day or two, but when you’re not roaming the streets, snapping photos of the brightly colored houses and buildings, swimming in the nearby cenote or admiring the architecture of the 16th-century convent of San Bernardino de Siena, consider passing time in the multipurpose Hostería del Marqués, a hotel that offers more than just lodging.

HIKING ALONG A PATH THROUGH THE FOREST, the only sounds I heard were the wind rustling through the leaves, the flow of a distant waterfall and, from time to time, the soft sounds of chatter from the others in my group. Missing were the sounds of traffic rushing by, car horns and the din of the everyday world in which most of us live. On this part of the Japan Hiking – Kumano Kodo & Nakasendo trip with REI Adventures, just the eight of us were on the trail, not another human in sight. An eco-adventure at its best, and it was glorious.
