Skip the taxi, save some money, and start getting acquainted organically by using P.T.
In most of the countries I've traveled to, I've taken #publictransportation. As a New Yorker, public transit comes somewhat natural to me, but even if it is not something you are accustomed to, it makes life easier. Most airports have an #airportbus #airportexpress or #airporttrain that will take you directly from the #airport to the #citycenter for relatively cheap. Public transportation will definitely cost significantly less than any taxi you could take (you could even take the public transit into the city and then catch a cab if you're on a budget). It is also a great way to soak in your latest destination, since the bus travels through different parts that a taxi may skip. These buses do have dedicated space for your luggage as well making this a definite #traveltip you can apply on your next trip.
