"Taxi, please." Shanghai Transportation Tip by Mairo21

Shanghai Transportation: 277 reviews and 350 photos


Another easy and always convenient way to get around would be by Taxi. Costs about 10RMB every 3 kilometers. Be sure to have someone write down your hotel name in Chinese, so that your driver will know where to take you when you want to come back. Vice Versa with your destination. Have someone write it down in Chinese. Trust me...It will save you a whole lot of hassles. Oh, and one more thing, before you leave the taxi, ask for a receipt. That way, if you accidentally leave something behind, or if you find they didn't give you back the right amount of change, you can pin your taxi down.
