By taxi may be the most convenient way. But the cost is a little expensive. Also, in Shanghai, it is a little hard to get a taxi. You may have to wait for 30 minutes or more to get a taxi, for there are too many passengers sometimes.
If there are more than 4 pax in your group or you travel with a lot of luggage, it is recommended to rent a car with a driver and English-speaking tour guide through travel agency. This kind of private transfer service is more considerate. You do not have to worry about the language and they will take directly to where you ask to.
