      Yeah, there seems to be a lot of ripping off. That’s why we recommend you just ride Vinasun or MaiLinh. We were never ripped off when we were there.

      It’s really bad to hear that you were cheated in our country. There will be many #727 cabs I guess because we have different taxi lines. I would probably say that the best places in Ho Chi Minh city aren’t just as few as those. However, it’s always best to have a Vietnamese friend who can tour you around and make it more wonderful than what you can expect. FYI, I’m not a tour guide. I studied in Las Pinas. Many friends of mine came to Vietnam and I helped them prepare the tour itinerary. Not bad experience yet thieves are worth beware of.

    hi ginger–very helpful review! do you know if there is an atm or a money changer at the airport? or did the cab take US$?

      I don’t remember if there was an atm but there is a money changer.

      The cabs take US$. Almost all stores take US$ actually. Since there’s demand for USD, you might be able to get rates that would be to ur advantage. But negotiate rates before going into the cab! :)
