Thanks Whitebear! That is a great review.  I mostly use taxis and public transit but also purchased  ...

Yes, I know this place in Xiamen :) and I admit - sea side and a bicycle, it is a great connection

About inflating tires - it is very convenient, that at almost every second corner there is small "workshop" that can not only inflate tires, but also repair punctured, or replace it.

Wrong info on Chinese license, there is no temporary license per se.
1. You must get a certified translation of your Country/State drivers license to apply.
2. You must have a complete medical exam performed at an authorized testing center.
3. You must schedule and take the written exam (on computer) and pass with a 90.
4. You must take the road test if in your Country you drive on the other side of the road.
5. You must have a RP and valid address, not a Tourist or Student Visa.
6. You must have a Chinese license to rent or lease a car (without a driver).
7. You must have a RP and valid address to buy a car, but don't need a Chinese license.

Note on the written (computerized) exam;
You must answer 100 randomly generated multiple-choice questions (A/B/C) selected from a database of 1500 possible questions. There is a 1 hour time limit and you get the results immediatly. You may be able to retake the exam the same day if you fail on the first attempt.
