Motor Bike Taxi
A great way to see the city and get around cheaply is to take a motorbike taxi. Of course, it is more dangerous than the bus or a taxi, but it is much faster than either and only a little more expensive than a bus ride. You can ride 3-5 km for 5 yuan. Make sure you bargain! A good tactic for bargaining that has worked well for me is to walk away when the driver won't give you the going price. Usually they will give you a fair price after you feign not giving him/her your business. Of course it is tough to know the going price if you are new to the city. You can judge how expensive it will be by taking a taxi. It should always be cheaper than a taxi ride. I have made friends with some of the drivers and call them when I can't seem to find anyone else to give me a ride.
Bus station next to Fuhua hotel
When you're at Zhongshan and ready to leave the city, there's a bus station right next to Fuhua hotel. You can't miss it if you just ask a bellboy or lobby person where it is. Its literally around the corner. This bus station/stop is a great way out of Zhongshan since it makes stop at all the other major cities near Zhongshan especially Guangzhou.
