Comments and Questions

I am sick of the drivers driving past me because I am not Chinese - yet stopping only a few metres past me to pick up a Chinese person. I've had drivers stop, then look at me, and then try to drive off. Today I got into one cab, and he told me to get out. I told him I would phone the Supervisor, but he started to push me out physically. (His ID number: 253130). Only 30 minutes later, another driver let a passenger out, and I went to his car. He also said no, but I know the law says he cannot refuse a fare. I got in, so he got out of the car. A few minutes later he got in and turned his sign to 'Pause'. He then went around to the passenger side and started to pull me out of the car. (His ID is 279459). I tried phoning the Supervisor, but the menu is all in Chinese and I can't understand it. I've never come across such a racist people before in all my travels around the world.

It's possible to take a taxi from the airport to Central Plaza, but one taxi can carry at most 5 people including the driver. You are a group of 6, so you have to take 2 taxis, costing about CNY120 per taxi for a single way.

M any tks Daniel for your reply to my previous question. I understand there are taxis waiting for customers at Badaling train station. May i know how much does it cost from the train station to the Great Wall entrance? If we decide to take the PULLEY, is the PULLEY near the ticket booth? Tks.

Steven :3/15/2010 8:57:00 PM

It doesn't cost too much from the railway station to the Great Wall entrance, since it is just about 500 meters away.

The cable car is very near to the ticket booth, please don't worry.

Is there a taxi that can ferry five persons in Beijing. Tks

Daniel :3/10/2010 7:30:00 PM

I don't think so, only if 3 of the five are children.

i take a taxi from guanqumenwai daji to guanghua lu junction of zhenzhi lu. the distance is 3.4 kms and the meter fare varies during the day between RMB 12 and 14. Today I took a taxi and the distance is 3.4 km, but the fare is RMB 17. This is excessive and the meter appears faulty, but the driver insisted that I pay him RMB 17. The taxi no. is B-H1755 and the no. alongside the driver's photo is: 261606. Can the authorities please take necessary action and confirm?

You can report to the police station in Beijing.

The taxi drivers need to be further regulated to a standard where they represent the city of Beijing to tourists and visitors and not just try to gouge visitors with as much money as they can get. Twice we have been treated badly and overcharged by taxi drivers in Beijing by driving around uselessly to run up the rate. I've travelled to many countries and cities and have lived in Asia. Beijing seems to be the worst place to use taxis and it leaves a veryt bad imprint in a visitors' experiences of your lovely city.

Hi Everyone,

I just got back from Beijing this evening. I am quite angry with some of the taxi drivers. I noticed during this visit, and only this trip, that many of the taxi drivers do not give you change after you pay. They only give me the receipts after asking for them several times. They all ask dumb and try to keep the change. It is disgusting to see they will do anything to cheat you. In fact, I gave up arguing with the taxi driver from my hotel to the airport. I gave him 100RMB for a 70RMB charge. I was too tried and simply just want to leave this country. I am upset that I did not take down his taxi number. I do have the receipt. Is there a place I can complain? Please help.

Should be around 70 RMB. You'd better take the airport bus, only 10 yuan.
