Taxi or scooter for 6 months in HCMC

Posted by dooky on 29/2/2016 at 08:34

Hi all,

I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh City for 6 months with 2 classmates. We have app. 7-8 km from the apartment to where we will work, but is unsure if we should make some sort of taxi arrangement or if we should rent a scooter and go on our own.

The implications of being involved in an accident looks a bit severe with high prison sentences.

Does anyone know what a trip by taxi from district 2 to district 9 (8 km) will cost? Perhaps some sort of permanent arrangement if possible.

Thanks alot for your help.

As i know, taxi's cost is VND10.000-12.000/km but price can be raise if you don't how much you have to paid exactly. Personally, i always use Uber or Grap when i need taxi to transfer. With 2 taxi companise, i really don't need care about price because they have price the cheapest comparing with other the branches. You can read more at:
