We tried several taxi drivers in our 4-day Sanya trip. We had both good and bad ones. And here I would like to recommend the ones that we had good experience with.
They are Mr. Cheung (張先生) and Mr. Choi (蔡先生) from Fujian (福建). They have moved to Hainan for more than 10 years already, now are partners and share a taxi together. For RMB 5000/mth, they rent a taxi and drive in shift.
When Yik and I were in their taxi, they were not pushy in giving and selling their sightseeing suggestions to us . Yik’s hometown is Fujian as well. So we are not sure if it was because of this fellow-townie relationship that made them so nice and easy on us.
But, anyways, we had a good time with them. We used their taxi a lot that day. So by the end of the day, we paid them RMB 150, with the extra RMB 50 as tips.
PS: If you are a Chinese, maybe you could pretend that you are a Fujianese who has moved out from Fujian since very young, and that’s why you couldn’t speak the language. Haha.
