Plan your Yinchuan tour? At the time of my writing, Yinchuan has currently over 5,000 registered taxis. The present number has a large gap with the national standard that the number of taxi should not be less than 2 per thousand persons. So, it is still a little difficult to hail a taxi on the streets in Yinchuan.
