Taxis are numerous and cheap compared to neighbouring countries. Don’t assume that your driver knows how to reach your destination, as they typically grab fares from all over the city. They also speak very little English (if at all), so it pays to write down your destination or at least carry a map or smartphone with GPS. All reputable taxi companies will start the meter as soon as you start the journey. For quality assurance, choose larger taxi companies such as Mai Linh or Vinasun. Pay attention to the taxi's logo and the company phone number to ensure they are not impersonators.
Local insight: Check the spelling of the taxi company before you get in. You could be stepping into an off-brand car
