If you arrive at the main airport, Saigon Airport www.hochiminhcityairport.com, you will see many taxis – most of them white or blue with the name “Airport Taxi” on the side of the car. Be careful of the taxis here – be careful of driver Minh #396. Visit our in depth article on how to use Taxis for more information on taxi procedures. When you first enter the taxi the meter will be set to either 6000 or 12000 Vietnamese Dong. This is normal as it is 6000 dong for 1 km and the minimum dong per trip is either 6000 or 12000.
We would like to thank Tam Thanh Le who worked for WHL Travel in Saigon many years ago, for her initial contributions to this guide.
