Why Taxi? They are City Experts
In Taiwan, taxi drivers are those who know the cities the most. In other words, they are city experts. They are familiar with every road and back street. Since the taxi drivers are always on the road, they also know the best place to satisfy your appetite without starving your wallet!
Get in Touch With Locals
Joining a tour with the taxi driver, you can directly interact with the locals and experience the real Taipei.
Moreover, taxi is a very efficient way to travel. You can browse the whole city within a ride.

Unlike other mass transportation, taxi is the only one that can go deeper into backstreet instead of main roads.

Q: I don’t speak any Chinese. How should I communicate with the driver?
A: Don’t panic! Most of the taxi drivers can speak a little English. Also, body language and facial expression are other good ways to communicate as well.
Q: I am concerned about the safety issue. Will it be a problem?
A: Don’t worry at all. Unlike some other countries, taxis in Taiwan are very safe. Every taxi driver has their legal licenses put at the most obvious place in their taxis. Also, the taxi drivers are those who we are very familiar with. They are all friendly and kind.
Q: Which sights will I actually visit? Can I ask the driver to take me to some tourist sights?
A: The Taxi Diary is more like a city adventure, not a car rental tour. You will not know the next destination even when you're in the taxi! That's the highlight of this tour 🙂
Q: What should I do if local passengers find me in the taxi after hailing?
A: The driver will explain the project to them briefly. If you still don't know what to do, just say hello to them!
