For a tourist, is there any point in going to the other airport, or is pudong better?

What's your point?

You mean arriving and departing from which airport? Do you have a choice? Most international flights arrive at Pudong anyway.

This is not a case of Haneda vs Narita. There is no direct flight from Changi to Hongqiao. You only need to be mindful if you make a Chinese domestic transfer. Your connection may be at SHA instead of PVG.

Hongqiao Airport is nearer to the city center.

Is it advisable to stay in pudong, or people's square? Or are there better places? This is for a first time visit.

My preference was Puxi ie older part of Shanghai across from Pudong.
The areas denoted by letters here:

Simply, I find that Puxi has more attractions than Pudong. Better connectivity for public transportation.
