Cost of a Xiamen Taxi
All taxis in Xiamen must use a taximeter to calculate the cost of your journey around the city. They use both a distance-based element and a time element to calculate the cost of your fare as follows;
Base fare (inc first 3km): €1.45 (CNY 10)

It’s important to note that 20% of your total fare will be added to your bill if you travel between the hours of 23:00 to 05:00.
