Thank you. Do you happen to know if there is any WIFi counter on Guiyang Airport? Or if I can use the WiFi without Chinese phone number.
Answered by Warren | Sep. 14, 2018 23:10

As I know, there is no Wifi counter in the airport and you can ask help for the airport staff.
Answered by Leonardo from INDONESIA | Sep. 15, 2018 05:22

Uh oh. Does that mean I have to obtain a Chinese number in order to be able to use the WiFi?
Answered by Phill from ITALY | Sep. 16, 2018 18:39

Well, there are two ways to connect the Wifi.
One way needs your Chinese phone number.
The other way needs wechat number.
Answered by Leonardo from INDONESIA | Sep. 17, 2018 04:26

Thanks man. It will work even though my WeChat number is Indonesian one right?
Answered by Leonardo from INDONESIA | Sep. 17, 2018 09:24

Also, if I choose to take taxi, do you know whether they have a counter or I will have to call the driver myself? I don't want to be scammed, so preferably there is a taxi counter.
Answered by Phill | Sep. 17, 2018 18:14

Yes, as I know, only if you have a Wechat number.
You have to go to the official taxi stands at the airport in order to find regular taxis. The boarding site is outside the 1F, Terminal 2. You can easily find the place according to the English signs at the airport.
Hope helpful!
