| Many rude and unhelpful people with absolutely no manners. They are so obsessed with security and collecting personal data/photos in the name of security. I will tell you a few things where I got scammed so you can be careful around this place. In order to get to the city, we were trying to catch a metered taxi. After reading other reviews about touts, we followed the signs to the taxi stand. Upon approaching the area, there were three "official" looking ladies (wearing something that resembles a Miss China pageant) who approached us with an official/helpful tone and asked which hotel we were going to. There was one with a computer terminal (fixed, giving it an official status), and after typing in to the computer, said it will cost us 260 Yuan for the taxi ride, and we should pay another 10 Yuan as toll fees to the driver. To our surprise, she then ushered us passing the yellow cabs, to another black town car, which was waiting at a distance. Later on (on our return) we realised that a metered fare would have been around 90-100 Yuan! Another trick they do is, pretending that the meter is running, and not even attempting to communicate in English (or sign language), demand that you pay a lot more. In terms of checking in to the airport, please remember to carry your extra camera battery, power bank etc in your hand luggage. There is no lame excuses, arguments, or decent dialogue, but they will confiscate it if they find it inside your hold luggage! They don't just mess around with these things, but will open your bag and take them out (and discard of them). The paid-for lounge is a bit of a joke, with only basic refreshments, overcrowded, with a lot of noisy passengers (yes, noisy ones)! No point though.
