In other words, before you go to Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll probably read some articles about how bad the taxis are.

Here are the main best taxi companies:

  • Vinasun – Vinasun is one of the most reliable taxi companies in Ho Chi Minh City, and they are also one of the largest. You’ll see Vinasun taxis, with their green and red stripe, everywhere you go in the city. Just make sure the logo is correct and make sure the phone number (38 27 27 27 – written on the side of the taxi) is correct as well.
    Mai Linh – Mai Linh is the other big taxi company in Ho Chi Minh City. For example, though, I probably took Vinasun 90% of the time.
    Grab, the private cab service is available in Ho Chi Minh City, and it’s beginning to take off.
