  19. 19. • Generally, it will cost CNY 100 - 200 from the Capital Airport to the city proper of Beijing, according to different distance. Badaling Great Wall is about 65 kilometers (40 miles) from the downtown area, which need more than CNY 200 to cover the expense by meter. Ask before getting on the cab, for most taxis do not meter while getting to those scenic spots far from the city center, then you should negotiate with the driver about the fare. From Tiananmen Square to Badaling Great Wall, it costs a little bit more than CNY 200, excluding the highway toll fare and additional fares for drive at night or at a speed lower than 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) per hour. To be notice, there is an empty run of about 50 kilometers (31 miles) while returning to the city center. So, few drivers would like to have a single run to the spot. To rend a vehicle for a round trip, it perhaps costs you CNY 500.
  20. 20. Useful Tips • 1. Usually, you can hail one anywhere in the city. However, if there is a solid white line with polices around in the prosperous area, such as Tiananmen Square, the drivers will not stop for your hailing. In this case, you should look for the one stands or wait at the side streets. Additionally, if you know the way to your destination, please hail on the correct sides of the road. 2. Make sure you use an official one with a sign on the roof and with the driver's registration car
  21. 21. • 3. It is recommended that tourists ask for a receipt when alighting from a cab because the details of the car are listed in it. This is useful should you have any problems such as leaving property behind. 4. Ask someone to write down your destination in Chinese beforehand in case of getting lost. 5. The fare can be paid with Transportation Smart Card which is used to travel on Beijing subway trains and buses. •
  22. 22. • Always enter and exit from the passenger side – even when you’re in the back seat. Sometimes the driver’s side door doesn’t even open. Most of the time you can sit in the front seat unless it’s late at night (for safety reasons). • Make sure the driver drops the meter – this is especially true when exiting the airport/train station/bus station. Some drivers will try to take advantage of you and “bargain” a price with you. This is illegal and you’ll probably get ripped off if you do so. Make sure they “drop the flag” on the dashboard meter to start your service.
  23. 23. • Pay Using Small Bills – if your fare is 10 RMB, don’t give the driver a 100 RMB bill. Many travelers have reported receiving fake bills in return and sometimes drivers won’t even have the correct amount of change. • Don’t Tip the Driver – this isn’t a custom in China and he’s not expecting it…even from foreign travelers. Just say a thank you and be on your way. • Keep the Receipt – at least for a few days. Why? The receipt has the vehicle number, so that if you happen to lose your wallet you can have your hotel call up and locate the exact taxi driver to return your belongings.
