In particular, taking a taxi will be comfortable and especially convenient if you want to go to places that the bus cannot reach. Taxis are charged by the meter, but there may be additional charges depending on the location and the taxi company you take. To estimate the amount to be paid, ask the driver about the surcharge and ask for an invoice at the end of the journey. You can hail a taxi while standing on the side of the road in most places, or by queuing at the taxi waiting areas available in most shopping malls, hotels and attractions.

In order to ensure the interests of passengers, we would like to recommend the distinction between real and fake taxis in detail here
