Many people have been participating in bike rides in the central cityof Hoi An; an activity that offered the opportunity to promote the use of vehicles thatare environmentally friendly. Below are some of the tips for fun and successful cartrip in Vietnam:1. Utilize Low Cost Taxi rides in VietnamIn sharp contrast to other countries in Asia, the Vietnamese taxis and taxi services areprivately managed. There are also severalindependent taxi cab companies. Each hasa fleet of vehicles with different rates. Ataxi is very cheap in Vietnam and theVietnam Taxi charges do not have anykind of supplement, other than the permile or per kilometer price. The price ofcab fare is calculated based on the milesand also depending on the time one hasbeen using the taxi.2. Enjoy Rides on Coaches in VietnamIn as far as Transportation by bus in Vietnam is concerned; the most recommendedmeans of transport for those on a car trip and the adventurous riders is the use ofcoaches. Buses that ply the Hanoi route are red and yellow, and the ones in Ho ChiMinh are white and green. However, depending on the level of traffic congestion, thebuses here may take other routes and may be regulated to stop or not to stop at a givendestinations. Payments for tickets are done directly on the bus.3. You can also choose to Move in a private carIt should be noted that if ones driving license has expired, one cannot rent a car.However, you can hire a driver who is a Vietnamese or get permission to drive afteryour licenses have been verified. It is much easier to hire a taxi and agree on the priceto be charged with the driver for long trips or for full days. In case one is a foreignerand has a drivers license brought in from the ones respective country of origin, onewill be exposed to theoretical examination before the license is validated. In additionto the theoretical examination, it is also mandatory that one passes the practical test onthe Vietnam streets.
