When it comes to price, convenience, and features offered to users of all types, the different apps vary greatly. For example, when it comes to price, Fast Go is the most affordable option, while Grab is the most expensive but provides a better service and experience for foreigners. Convenience is another important factor to consider. All of the apps make it easy for riders to find a ride quickly and easily. However, Vinasun is the only app that allows users to pay for their rides using cash.

Finally, Fast Go is another taxi app that is worth mentioning. This app is similar to Grab in that it allows users to hail a ride and pay for their fare using their phone. However, Fast Go does not have as many drivers as Grab does, so keep that in mind if you’re thinking about using this app.

These apps offer riders the ability to book rides in advance, as well as the ability to track their driver’s location in real-time. However, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want an app that is easy to use and has a lot of drivers, then Grab is probably the best option.

The best taxi app in Vietnam is definitely Grab. It’s really convenient and user-friendly, plus it’s affordable too. I’ve tried using other apps but none of them come close to Grab in terms of service and price.


Some of the taxi services feel like they are out to scam you so a price comparison would be helpful. Is there a place where you can actually view stats like this? 


In my experience, Goviet is quite fast but danger:(( It sent my heart jumping in my mouth few times ago. And taxi I don’t really use it in HCM because if you don’t know street well there, you may be deceived around and around. So I think Grab app is the best to use


Didn’t uber or whatever it is called get bought out in Vietnam and doesn’t even operate anymore? I remember reading that somewhere months ago. 


@homeg1rl yes, Uber was acquired by Grab. They couldn’t compete in Southeast Asia.


Mai Linh and Vinasun are the only taxi services I know that are truly taxi services. The rest seem to be similar or exactly like Uber where they are a ride-sharing company.
