Vinasun Taxi Service in HCM

It is difficult to find taxi services that are reputable when traveling in HCM. However we found Vinasun taxi service (green and white taxi color) to use the meter and be the most straighforward service around town. Just wanted to let you know!

Thanks for your tips. Make sure you check driver uniform too (some fake out there). Vinasun drivers wear white shirt with red tie while Mai Linh drivers wear green tie.

Thanks for your sharing but I think that Vinasun is not the only good brand in Hồ Chí Minh.

Mai Linh is good too :3

We were ripped off by Vinasun. We arrived on the bus from Mui Ne and not knowing where our hotel was we got in a taxi. Unbeknown to us our hotel was 500 metres down the road. The taxi driver took us on a 15 minute journey costing US$15. We had to ask him to put the meter on and the meter seemed decidedly dodgy - suddenly jumping 50,000 dong in the last 30 seconds. Best advice we can give is have a map and know where your hotel is in relation to the bus stop.

I just got back from HCMC, my experiences with Vinasun were not so favorable. My first two trips, short distances I was shorted a dollar by both drivers. I don't know if there is a minimum fare requirement or what but I do take responsibility for my initial lack of familiarity with the local currency and only realizing after I had gotten out how much I change I had been given.

Another time I took a cab to a friends place with the address written on a piece of paper, the next day I took the same ride from the same location, the driver must have taken a different route because the cost was 45vnd or around two dollars more than the previous time.

My final time getting to the airport from Bui Vien was ok, 137k vnd which was consistent with what most people seemed to pay for the same distance. I paid 140 the guy asked me for 10k additional for the toll, I read in the past that the passenger isn't required to pay this, I don't know if it's true or not but I argued the fact and the driver eventually stopped asking me for it but didn't give me back my 3k vnd change.

$1 or $2 dollars really ? Thats your complaint? How much do people earn in Vietnam do you think? Each to their own but I'd be more than happy to pay that !
