Singapore takes No. 2 spot for best taxi services in travel survey


Singapore came in second for best taxi services, cleanest streets, and safest streets, in a survey conducted by travel site TripAdvisor.

The Cities Survey by TripAdvisor looks at how travellers and locals view 40 key tourist cities in various categories, including best public transport, friendliest people, and friendliest taxi drivers.

The 40 cities were compiled by World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) in 2010, based on countries which receive the largest number of international visitor arrivals.

The online pop-up survey collected more than 75,000 responses, from people who had recently written reviews on the TripAdvisor site on the featured cities, such as Tokyo, Zurich, and Dubai.
