I'm convinced, they would never cheat! Me!angel 

 

I'd rather walk, if distance is shorter than 2km.

I haven't seen what I'd call cheating. But we often take taxis on the same distance, it's about 20RMB, but can vary 2-3RMB (this is not due to traffic lights) 
That is more than 10%. hmmmmm, 10% extra on an annual cabbie income.... THOSE BASTARDS

Shanghai's cabs really do kick up tabs really fast.  They probably count the time stopped in traffic which makes it seem like its ticking up very quickly. Seems different cities are changing their cab fare tabulation methods.  Maybe you can only take cabs when necessary.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
