Please look out for these taxis. They charge one rate verbally before you accept to use them and once you in they charge a different rate. Their initial price was 150000 VDN more than we were suppose to pay and 170000VDN more than reliable taxis....More

I needed to go down the street and the ride took 20 minutes longer than it should have. He purposefully went in a circle to increase the time and to get more money. Always make sure to show the driver a gps location or some...More

Beware of taxi scams in HCMC - my mom and I took a taxi from the Ben Thanh market to our hotel and it was one of the worst taxi experiences in my life. He stopped the car in a dark alleyway, and told us...More
