I'm 24 and I'll be backpacking in Shanghai for the first time ever throughout the final week of this month. Having chosen Blue Mountain Bund Youth Hostel as my accommodation, the receptionist has sent me this via email:
"If you take a taxi, DO call the taxi from taxi stand. Don't follow those taxi drivers who approach you to avoid being cheated, and don’t forget to get the taxi receipt when you get off the taxi."
I'll be arriving at 12.30am just past midnight and I have no choice but to use the taxi to get to my hostel. Can anybody tell me the reliable and trusted taxi company name as well as their uniform/taxi car color?(a link will be great!)
That will be really useful. Otherwise, it'll be difficult for me to differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones.
I heard that many taxi drivers overcharge their customers and use fake RMB notes.
From those with experience, please advice. Thanks.
