The Best Taxis from Around the World

As far as the world of taxi cabs are concerned, the bar isn’t set particularly high. Most adventure-seeking travelers modestly request stain-free seats, a smooth ride, and a cost-effective route. The bar for superior taxi service isn’t very high. Perhaps, that’s because most of us have yet to experience the top-shelf customer experience offered by some of the world’s best taxis!

As you’ll see across the next few pages, some taxi companies aim to exceed all expectations. They do much more than transport our bodies and our bags from one itinerary stop to the next. They create a memorable experience; a journey as enjoyable as the destination.

Today, we take a look at the most celebrated taxi service in the entire world. Buckle up and let’s go!

New York City, New York

If you’ve ever seen a movie set in NYC, then you’re probably all too familiar with the yellow cabs zooming through the over-crowded streets. Though their numbers are waning, yellow taxis are still an important part of the city that never sleeps. But you know this already.

What you might not have known, is that New York City has a much more interesting and unique transportation option: the New York Water Taxi. Sporting a traditional, New York Taxi yellow paint job, New York’s fleet of Water Taxis offer tourists an Insta-worthy sight-seeing experience across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Statue of Liberty. It’s going to take more than a waving hand and a serious expression to wave these things down though. If you’re hoping to hop aboard, you’ll need to book your trip in advance.

Mini Guide to Indonesia

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires. Indonesia is therefore a melting pot of cultures with the largest Muslim population in the world, but also with strong influences from Hinduism and Buddhism, particularly in Bali. It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.
