Slide 1: Tips For Taking Taxis In Beijing At present, the taxi is an indispensable transportation vehicle in peoples daily life, especially when people on a journey. However it is more expensive by taxi than by bus or other vehicles, it is still a favored and convenient way to get around. When you tour to Beijing, it is just the same. In order to spend a good holiday in China, youd better know some tips of taking taxis in advance. Beijing taxi fares are metered, and the starting price is 10 CNY for the fist 3 kilometers (1.86 miles), and 2 CNY for each additional kilometer. Be ware that evening rates are more expensive, 20% extra fee will be added between 23:00 to 05:00. Only a taxi with the license plate number of "BXXXXX" is a legitimate taxi. A legal taxi will charge according to the taximeter and passengers dont need to bargain. There are also some taxis without taximeter or toplight, which are illegal and always lay down passengers on the way or overcharge, so dont take these taxis even they may be helpful when taxis are scarce. Remember to ask for the invoice when you leave the taxi. There are some useful information printed on the invoice, such as complaints hotline, plate number and the company of the taxi, which will helpful when you forget something on the taxi or encounter some problems. Either drivers or passengers are not allowed to smoke in taxis. If you encounter a driver who smokes in taxi, you can complain to the Taxi Companies Hot Line Service: 010 68351150. If you dont understand mandarin at all and just encounter a taxi driver dosent know foreign languages, you may be in trouble. Except some commercial buildings and famous attractions in Beijing city, your driver may dont know where you want to go. So if you live in a star hotel, you can ask a staff to write down the place name you want to go in Chinese or take a card with tourist attractions offered by hotels, so that you can show it to the taxi driver. You should get on the taxi from the right side (near pavement), not only because it is a safe way, but also the door on the other side always is locked. Pay more attention when you get off the taxi, otherwise you may scare even knock down the old cyclist with the taxi door. Though only the taxis with single plate number or double plate number are allowed to run in some day, you still need prepare yourself to wait for a long time in the still taxi, especially in the peak hour. It may be a special skill of some drivers to avoid the crowded streets, so dont doubt too much if drivers detour or choose some strange roads. Some foreign visitors have found that if they can speak even a little mandarin, they will spend a happy time in taxi. Chinese taxi drivers are happy to chat with foreigners, so youd better learn some
