Taxis are a convenient means of getting from one place to another within the city. You can catch a taxi almost anywhere around the city at any hour of the day. You will also find taxi stands throughout the city, outside many train/subway stations and large shopping centers.
Just be aware that some drivers may not speak English well, so explaining your destination may be difficult. Also, occasionally suitcases do not fit in the vehicle, and some taxis do not accept credit cards.
For simple and secure service, it is recommended that you use a Foreigner-Friendly Taxi or a Taxi dispatching application on your smart device.
