City dwellers everywhere rely on taxis to get them quickly and safely to their destinations. Taxi drivers know the streets and the people of their cities better than almost anyone, and they provide services that are essential to nearly every other business in a city — including hotels and resorts. On September 25th, 2017, Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen hosted an event it called “Sending Love to Taxi Drivers” at the hotel’s entrance. The event’s purpose was to thank Xiamen’s taxi drivers for their contributions to Xiamen’s urban transportation network and for their efforts in driving Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen's distinguished guests to their destinations safely and comfortably.


Mr. Richard Hng, General Manager of Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen, and a taxi driver.


The hotel’s General Manager, Mr. Richard Hng, and the Hotel Management Team appeared at the event to personally distribute their exquisitely prepared gifts — vacuum cups and desserts — to taxi drivers. The gifts were designed to replenish drivers’ energy and give them something  to drink in the middle of their busy workdays. The campaign lasted six hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.



Situated in the city's important newly developed business district, Guanyin Shan Business Centre, Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen’s soft opening was held on August 21st this year. At the event for taxi drivers, Mr. Richard Hng said, “As one of the landmarks of the Guanyin Shan Business Centre, Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen, as well as Xiamen’s taxi drivers, is an emblem of commerce in Xiamen. We hope to impress our distinguished guests with our sincere hospitality at Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen.”
