Just a quick note to my followers that when in Ho Chi Ming City (Saigon) make sure you only use Vinasun Taxis. They are easily recognizable as a predominately white taxi with red and green branding.
Especially when arriving at the HCMC Airport (International Terminal), walk past all the taxi’s lined up at the taxi rank as these are all small companies associated with the people working at the terminal and so will overcharge – I have spoken to many people who have had bad experiences with Taxi’s from the airport.
So walk past all these and you will see at the end of the taxi line the Vinasun Taxi’s and generally a lovely man who will arrange a Vinasun Taxi. This will definitely be metered and will cost 110,000 to 150,000 dong to District 1 and the City Centre.
