Take a Taxi

Taking a taxi is a convenient option. Look for the illuminated "TAXI" sign on top of the vehicle. Payment must be made in RMB cash. For your reference, the initial fare is RMB 5 (including the first 3 km), followed by RMB 1.2 per kilometer for distances between 3 and 8 km, and RMB 1.8 per kilometer for distances exceeding 8 km. Additionally, fares increase by 10% during nighttime hours. For example, a trip from Weihai or Yantai Airport to downtown Weihai may cost approximately RMB 150.

Many taxi drivers in China may not speak or understand English. To ensure smooth communication, it's advisable to have your destination and address written in Chinese or provide the telephone number of your destination, which you can show to the taxi driver. Prior to your departure, we recommend contacting your hotel to obtain your hotel name and address in Chinese. Alternatively, you can seek assistance from the hotel concierge.

Please remember to request a receipt before exiting the taxi if you anticipate the need to file a complaint.
