Taxis in Hohhot
Hohhot, the capital of the Autonomous Region of Inner Mongolia in northern China, means “green city” in the local language. It is home to 36 ethnic groups and boasts the richest and most colourful cultural resources of Zhaomiao. Hohhot is also considered an ideal place to chill and decompress from modern-day pressures, thanks to the outstanding beauty of the Gegentala and Xilamuren Regions and the incredible cultural sites such as the Dazhao Temple and the Five-Pagoda Temple.
Finding your way around in an unfamiliar country such as China may not be an easy task. Make every minute of your stay in this lovely Chinese city count and stay protected from the elements by choosing a Hohhot taxi for your transportation. By ordering or hailing a cab, you will not waste time dragging around your luggage on public transport; instead, you’ll get to enjoy the city sights en route, relax in the privacy of your own vehicle and explore the city at your own rhythm with a professional driver.
