  Taxi at Hanoi, Vietnam
by victorwkf

Taxi is a relatively cheap mode of transport in Hanoi, and a trip will normally cost between 10,000 to 20,000 Vietnamese dongs. However, the main problem is that taxi drivers may try to rip off tourists e.g. using a tampered taxi meter, going by a longer route etc. One way is to negotiate a suitable price before taking the taxi (some taxi drivers do not even care to reduce the price despite bargaining) or ask your hotel to get the taxi for you as the hotel staff will know the price and how to negotiate with the taxi drivers. The main taxi operators in Hanoi include Hanoi Taxi (tel: 04-8535353), CP Taxi (tel: 04-8241999) and Mai Linh Taxi (tel: 04-8222666).
