Tips for Safe Taxi Rides in Vietnam

Here are our tips from our recent experience with the taxi’s in Vietnam.

1. Vinasun was okay. Mai Linh was dishonest to us in Danang so we avoided it altogether.

2. Bring a smartphone with GPS (there’s free GPS in Vietnam–no need for wifi). Research directions of where you want to go prior to getting on the taxi. Use the GPS function to see whether you’re being driven the right way or just to indirectly let your driver know that you’re not an naive tourist they can cheat.
