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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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 ?

  7. 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:


    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!
