With this job, Liu Pengfei, 33, whose months even earned 19,000 yuan, is twice the average salary in Beijing .
Mr. Liu’s work usually starts in the evening and late at night – when the pubs become more active and busy. The demand for this service at that time also increased by 2 to 3 times.
With this job, the tenants often gathered at a point away from the nightclubs, dining venues within a radius of 100m and waiting for customers to connect via the phone application.
Typically, Liu and his colleagues will use the customer’s car to take them home. However, not all tenants are asking to take home immediately, because according to Mr. Liu, one third of the customers he served asked him to take him to another entertainment place instead of going home.
