Best way is to walk to the left when your out, talk to the Visasun staff and they will put you in a taxi with ticket with the taxi number!, 160.000 did we pay incl airport fee. For those who dont have pass-photo on arrival you need to pay 5 usd for one photo at the Customs desk, you better get photos taken before you arrive.

This visa fee they we dont like, take it away and you will get much more tourist, we like´d Vietnam but go to Thailand the land of smile, much better :-)))

I ended up using Greenpath transfers. Their service was really good and the driver was helpful for myself, my family and our ample luggage post our visit to Hoi An's tailors. I paid just over $20 USD each way. I know I could have got it cheaper via taxis but I was happy with the price and service.

We took a Vinasun taxi right outside arrivals to district one a few days ago the cost was 140,000VND. Taxis around town are cheap too.

Last year we booked a private transfer back in the UK and although the driver was very good It cannot be said of the car, it was a death trap but it was an experience to behold.

The vinasun are very good

DO NOT go with anyone that comes up to you! They are fakes....

The last info I have is that you have to pay the airport toll so it is meter plus 10,000dong airport fee. You do not have to pay departure tax if that is what you are referring to. Someone else may have more recent advice but Vinasun had a notice in their cars that the airport toll was payable.

I hate taxi.

Ross there is no more any note on Vinasun taxis but the drivers target everybody coming and going to airport with the airport fee from 10k to 20k, that should be payed by the driver only on exiting the airport...

I just don't care, I've increased to 1E the minimum threshold to start caring...so unless the total is outside the usual range i really do not care, but it will be mood dependent. ^^__^^

Still remember at arrival the driver wanted something, i was sleeping on the taxi and the hotel staff was "negotiating" for me....

In one week i'll take a taxi at home and it will start at 15E before entering it.

I hate taxi.

Two days ago I took bus nr. 152 from Ho Chi Minh (SGN) Airport to the city (district 1). The bus leaves in front of the international terminal and costs 10.000 dong.

It has a stop at the central bus station in district 1 right next to the roundabout and park and opposite the Ben Thanh Market. It took about 30-40 minutes in the early morning, can take up to one hour in heavy traffic.

From the central bus station in district 1, the first bus leaves at 6am and last bus at 6pm, according to the staff at the bus station. The frequency is every twenty minutes.

I think this is a very good alternative to the taxi as it is trustworthy and soooo much cheaper. Even the bus driver spoke some english and he was very kind and happy that some westerner took the bus. he told me when I had to get off, so nothing to worry about at all.

I hope I could help all the budget travellers with that post :) as I am one of you.
