Get to AsiaComm (Pullman Saigon Centre) From Ho Chi Minh City Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN)
The main taxi queue is on your far left when you exit through the main door on the ground floor of the terminal building. Head straightly for the taxi queue and ignoring people who approach you offering taxis or advising you to purchase tickets at counters in the airport. It is suggested that you select a green Mai Linh or Vinasun taxi which depart from taxi section number 1. Ask the driver to turn the meter on before you get in the car. Pullman Saigon Centre is in District 1 and the fare should be around 150,000 – 180,000 VND. You will also need to pay extra 10,000 VND to cover the Airport surcharge.
Be cautious of taxis from dubious companies with names that resemble the reputable companies mentioned above. Some of these include Mei Linh or Mai Lin instead of Mai Linh, and Vinamet, Vinason or Vinasum instead of Vinasun. It has been reported that such companies charge outrageous fares to unsuspecting passengers, sometimes by using meters that run faster or by manually increasing the fare when passengers are not looking. There have also been instances of taxi drivers from such companies driving off with passengers' belongings still in the boot.
