Shanghai Tourist Traps: 68 reviews and 50 photos
Travelling around Shanghai on the subway is the cheapest mode of transport other than you own a bicycle;p
Many could afford a car but choose not to drive because of the hassle of driving on the road. You will pratically live in fear and stress when you drive. I must say that they are the most aggressive drivers i ever met.
You either employ a chauffer or take a taxi.
But if you are a tourist or they can smell that you are not a local, they will bring you for a round the expressway ride. you can see what happened on Amazing Race.
If you think that the taxi driver is bringing you on a joy ride, you may take down their licence numer and simply give the company a call to report the driver and he would not get a cent.
My "American Friend" lives in Pudong. Usually he will be mistaken as a tourist or on business trip. He knows the taxi fare very well. If the driver gives him a joy ride, he will not hesitate to call the company or pay the driver the fare he thinks the trip will cost. My friend even showed me a list of bad cabby;p
If you agree with me, then make sure you give this tip a good ranking. Thank you!
