"Taxi" Taxis Tip by Willettsworld

Taxis, Beijing: 86 reviews and 49 photos


Beijing is a huge city and the sights are very spread out and not all of them are within walking distance of the metro. I took a few taxi trips around Beijing without any problems and, for a capital city, they're not that expensive at all. In the daytime, the taxi flag fall is RMB10 for the first three kilometers, and it is RMB2 per kilometre for the remainder of the journey. If the journey is longer than 15 kilometers (8 miles), the charge rises to RMB3 per kilometre.
