In the city, it is convenient to travel by taxi and taking taxi is very cheap. The base price is for the beginning 3 kilometers (1.86 miles): CNY3 for one person; CNY4 for two persons; CNY5 for three or more persons. The starting price is CNY5 from 22:00-23:00 and after than it goes up to CNY6. Then every additional kilometer costs CNY1. Taking taxi to circle around the city tourists spend no more than CNY6 even at night and during the daytime, around CNY3 is necessary to get around the city proper.
If going to Yuping Dong Autonomous County and Jiangkou County which are frequently visited by visitors, it is still economical to take a taxi. Departing from local Bus Station, one passenger is charged CNY15-CNY20, which is only a little bit higher than taking a minibus. But the drivers usually leave when the car are full of four passenger.
