Size of Taxi

Hi, we will be arriving at 1:30am. Is it difficult to get a taxi from the airport to our downtown hotel? Can the taxi accomodate 4 adults plus luggages and approximately how much is the fare? Thank you

You can get a taxi after midnight, 2 a.m. or so, without any difficulty. Be sure to use the official taxi queue and ignore the touts who will approach you saying "Taxi, where are you going?" These are independent operators, not recommended and not safe or reliable.

Four adults with checked luggage plus carry-on luggage is too much for one taxi. You will need two.

Fare to most parts of downtown is about 100 yuan. Travel time should be 45 minutes or so. If you give the name of your hotel, I can be more precise.

Be sure you have the name and address of your hotel written out in Chinese characters. Drivers won't speak any English. Also have the hotel's phone number ready, in case the driver needs to call for directions.
