    We arrived at Guilin West railway station on March 24 at 13:31 and took a taxi from the taxi stand at the exit. It looked like a legitimate taxi and he used the meter. He drove us to Aroma tea house which is 2.5km according to the map and charged us 60yuan. We were expecting around 20-30yuan. When we asked him for a receipt he pretended not to understand, then when pressed further said that his printer was broken.

    We have photos of his license and plates and would like to report him.
    Please forward an email or address where we can send this complaint.
    Thank you,
