"Taxi Tip #2" Shanghai Shi Transportation Tip by Fullmoonfever

Shanghai Shi Transportation: 30 reviews and 36 photos

Of all the cities I've been in, Shanghai is by far the cheapest city to move around in and the taxi fares are no exception.

The minimum price for a taxi in Shanghai is 11 RMB, which is about $1.65. I have gone half way across the city for about 3/4 dollars. Other cities in China have different minimum prices. And this price is not per person, so filler-up!

And there are lots of taxis. If one isn't readily available, just wait 30 seconds, one will be by soon.
