"At Night, Try to Bargain with the Cabbie" Taxis Tip by sonnynyc

Taxis, Hong Kong: 39 reviews and 39 photos

If you are living (or staying with friends) very far away without MTR (stops running from Central at 12:20am), bus, or the red minibus running that way, you'll probably take the taxi.
You can BARGAIN with the cabbie. So go for it (assuming you know what the normal metered fare would be). Remember to say that it includes EVERYTHING (this mainly means the tunnel fees)
There's even phone numbers to call for a 20%-off cab ride where they use the meter but knock off 20%

In my case, from LKF to Kowloon-side Clearwater Bay, the ride is normally $150-$180 HKD (incl. tunnel fees). You can bargain down to $120. Luckily for students, we've found a cabbie who has a network that will give you $120, no questions asked.
