Ratings and Reviews
Great chinese Uber app!
You need this! Only works with WiFi ! So make sure you actually have connection 24/7. It accepts USA number too - any number just switch the dial to United States. Wait for the text and connect it. Also it accepts visa too. I used my Bank of America card. DIDI is way cheaper than a taxi. A taxi will scam you and overcharge you! A 30 min drive is less than $11 or even $7. In order to find you car the picture and license plate of the person is in the DIDI that was chosen for the ride. None speak English, so sometimes they might call you for precise directions- hand your phone to nearest chinese person and point to building. Many help out. Ni hui shou ying yu ma? Means do you speak English. Tai xie xie le means thank you so much. Practice them! Download the “sayhi” app for translating and again it only works with internet connection. Tip: any Woman foreign or not! should never be by themselves! Especially at night. Be very careful, while this app is useful, I never went by myself I went with my husband always! If you feel in your gut the driver seems sketchy. Don’t enter it and get another didi
Do not travel to China without DiDi
The best and only Taxi App you can trust while living and/or traveling in China! Just do yourself the favor of downloading the app, set up International credit card and navigate the user interface in order to familiarize your self with it.
It’s unquestionably not easy to navigate anything in China without knowing Chinese and inputting addresses and/or locations can be challenging in any local app. Yet, this is due to the fact that using Pinyin (Chinese-Romanization) writing it’s difficult if you have not taken Chinese.
Regardless... of this, there are no other truly viable options with an English friendly GUI, that gets you where you need to go. We have been using DiDi for nearly four months on a daily basis and we could not live without it.
Terrible but better than the alternative
Traveling in Shanghai and don't speak any Mandarin. Needed a way to get around so tried DiDi. Used it 10 times. First major issue is the English interface for entering starting location and destination is maddeningly bad. Locations super easily found in Google maps don't seem to exist. After 10 mins of trial and error I can usually find a location nearby, but often not the actual location. The credit card payment only accepts Visa, but doesn't tell you that (or at least that was the issue for me). After 10-15 minutes of frustratingly trying to set locations, the pick up and drop off worked great and payment seemed to work fine. One tricky part is the driver might text you in the app and it was in chinese. There are some default replies that you can give, but was never really sure if we understoood each other. Seems like lots of easy fixes, but foreigners are clearly not their target market.
