By cab

Empty cabs or cabs for hire usually have a green or yellow-orange light on the dashboard of the car. It is important to note that if you are rushing to catch a train or a flight, it is difficult to flag down a cab between 4pm to 7pm as it is rush hour and cabs are in the midst of changing shifts. If you cannot speak Chinese, make sure that you have a map with you so that you can point out your destination.
