For most car enthusiasts, calling up a taxi and having a brand new Lamborghini turn up would be nothing more than a dream.
However, for those in Dubai, this could be a reality, as this infographic and article (over here) from The Taxi Centre shows. Taking a look at 15 different countries, the infographic goes into detail on the pricing, etiquette, and vehicles used as taxis around the world.
Whether it’s a gypsy cab in Russia, a boat in Venice, a seaplane in the Maldives or even an elephant in Thailand, the ways people get home around the world can be weird, wonderful, and sometimes dangerous.
If you’ve ever found yourself in a foreign country wondering whether you can get away without a tip, the infographic offers up some useful information. Whilst not tipping in China is just good manners, it’s a much different story in New York.
Take a look at the full infographic below, and head over to The Taxi Centre for more information on the history of the taxi.
