Here'll you learn Mandarin Chinese vocabulary useful when grabbing a taxi in China. You'll also learn Chinese phrases to ask the taxi driver to take you to your hotel. You'll also get a chance to learn Mandarin pronouns that haven't come up in conversation yet. Dani also introduces further useful verbs such as to go and to arrive.

Many taxi drivers in Beijing and China do not speak much English, if any! The best approach is to print out or ask someone to write down the name of your hotel or wherever else you want to go. You should get in the habit of picking up a card from your hotel reception. You can show this to any taxi driver and easily get back to your hotel!

Taxis in China are great value for money, with the minimum fare starting at around 10RMB. You can hail a taxi on the street, but try to find a quiet place with sufficient space for them to pull over. If you're staying at a hotel, the staff can usually help you to hail a cab. At bigger hotels, you might even see a queue of taxis outside the front door.
