What about taxis in China?TOP

Taxis in China are common and can be flagged down easily everywhere. In different cities, the flagfalls range from CNY 4 to CNY 12 and are counted by the taxi meters. Generally, the cabs can print receipts. You should ask for one when getting down to contact the cab driver quickly once you leave behind something in the taxi because there is information like the driver’s telephone number being printed on the receipt. Besides, as most cab drivers know little English, before getting on a taxi, you have to write down your destination in Chinese and show it to the driver.
