    Dear Jessica, the cost will be around 150.000 to 200.000 VND and you should catch only 'Vinasun' or 'Mai Linh' taxi as they are truthworthy company. Regards, Bo

    Response from Bo-Tripwriter |
    Hi, we don't have pick-up service at the moment due to many reasons. And we don't sell tour also but there's a good travel agent next to our hotel (The Sinh Tourist) that offers many tours. Regards, Bo.
