Taxi Information from Airport to City Center

Hello,

How much will a taxi on its meter cost from the Airport to the City Center? Is it easy to get a cab outside the Airport - are they all legal? Do you generally barter before you get in it? Any illegal cabs in this area?

Thanks

It costs around GBP4 to 8 for a cab to go to downtown.The taxi sign is clear when you walk out of arrival hall.No one bargains there,and you pay by meter.

Yes, you could take a cab outside the Chengdu Shuangliu Airport. It is safe even in the evening. Last time I took one, it cost about 68 Yuan.

Just look for the green VW cabs with meter. They are all legal. But there are some illegal ones for which you can bargin with the driver.

Lots of green VW taxis everywhere so you wont be stuck at the airport.

We went from Shangri-La hotel to Airport last week and it cost us 60yuan at approx 3pm.

If you are approached by a driver wanting to negotiate a taxi price with you, tell him to bugger off and find a taxi waiting at the curb or hail one down. They have meters so zero reason to negotitate a price around the city as they are trying to play you for an easy mark. One guy tried to tell us it would cost 100yuan from Panda centre to Jinli street - actually cost 50yuan with a different driver who had a meter.

Enjoy Chengdu - the drivering is crazy.

Hi

Just make sure that the meter is turned on. You just have to point at it

In my visits to Chengdu I have found the taxi drivers to be honest
