Hong Kong Travel Dictionary - tips for guests

Taxi Drivers

Taxi drivers in Hong Kong are genuinely professional. Vast majority of Taxi drivers are middle aged Chinese men who speaks very limited English. However, most of them know the English name of major streets, buildings and landmarks in Hong Kong. Taxi drivers who operates on the Hong Kong Island knows the island very well; those who operates in Kowloon knows the peninsular well. Taxi drivers are usually honest, reliable and would not go around in loops. They are required to display their license (Taxi Driver Identity Plate) with their photo and name at the front. They will present a receipt of the journey when being asked.
