    How many passengers can 1 taxi carry please?

  2. admin says:

    Basiaclly, one standard taxi ( car type ) can carry 4 passengers ( one by the taxi driver and three on the rear seat ).

  3. Christian says:

    Visited Hangzhou recently and could not fetch a taxi near the railway station. All drivers drove away when I tried to stop them, while they happily accepted chinese customers. Any idea what was the reason for that strange behavior? regards, christian

  4. Daniel says:

    Hello Christian,

    It looks very strange in your case. First time for me to learn about this situation. The only possible reason, as I understand, is that maybe you were not in the right place to hail a taxi. In Hangzhou, in peak hours, it is really difficult to fetch a taxi. It is advisable to learn how to use the express bus system in Hangzhou, which is quite convenient. Well, have a good stay in Beijing.

    Hi,

    We will be visiting Hangzhou in December 15. Would it be difficult to hail a taxi if we want to travel from Ding’an Road to Jinxiu Fengshuidong 锦绣风水洞 on a weekday, after 200pm? Roughly how much is the taxi fare? Would it be difficult to catch a taxi for the return trip? Tq

  6. Daniel says:

    Hi Almend Yap,

    Not sure if a taxi driver would like to take the business and have no idea on the taxi rates involved. You may reserve a car or van through your hotel or local travel agency for a return trip to Jinxiu Fengshuidong 锦绣风水洞.

  7. Chung Wok Kim says:

    I am need to book a taxi from Hangzhou Airport (Arrival about 2pm) to Xitang on the 20th March 17.
    Can anyone help me ? How much it will cost me ?

  8. Daniel says:

    Hi Chung Wok Kim,

    Thanks for your inquiry! There are many taxis waiting out the airport terminal. You don’t need to prebook a taxi.

    Please check out the link for the pricelist hanging on the wall near the official taxi stand at Hangzhou Airport Arrival Hall:

    www.tour-beijing.com/blog/zhejiang-travel/hangzhou-travel/hangzhou-airport-taxi-taxis-at-hanzghou-xiaoshan-airport

    But we don’t find any price information on the taxi from Hangzhou Airport to Xitang.

    The taxi fare from Hangzhou Airport to Xitang is estimated at 580 yuan ( 130 km ) according to the pricelist on the page above.

    Have a nice trip!
