Customer reviews of Kiwitaxi
It was a nice trip, and we can recommend Kiwi Taxi. The only thing which was really bad, was the discussion between SaigonGuide and your driver about the fee, which was not traceable, because your taxi driver was not in the port we meet him outside of the port.

Driver picked me up at the airport and brought me to my destination safely (Nghi Son approx. 4 hours driving). Next time I would book the taxi via kiwitaxi again.

Why do tourists choose buses and shuttle buses to get Hanoi Lao Cai

This route is popular among both tourists and the locals of Vietnam, and is operated by many types of public transport. Buses and tourist shuttles are the good option for those who are travelling alone or with a friend, for young people, who feel familiar with the country and speak its language as well as for those who would like to reduce the costs of their holiday.

Buses and shuttles vs. other types of public transport

The cheapest variant. Moneywise, a bus ride is either equal to other types of public transport (for example, suburban train), or 5–15% cheaper than any of these options.

Easy to change. A bus brings you to the stop, from which it is easy to get to your destination: in case of a tourist shuttle, it might even bring you to your hotel. Regular buses start off from the large transport hubs, heading to the most popular directions, and run through the central districts of the neighbouring towns and resorts. For example, the bus from the airport stops at the stop from which it is easy to get to your destination with maximum one change. Kiwitaxi tourist shuttles bring tourists to their holiday destinations, and not just drop them in the city center.

A small excursion during the trip. Buses go slowly and make stops. On some tourist shuttles there are attendants, who help pass the time by telling about the sights.

Disadvantages of buses compared to other types of public transport

Full in rush-hour. Buses are the most available variant, and most of tourists, who are not ready to spend money on taxi, use it. You are likely to travel with your luggage on your knees or even standing. Group shuttles are filled up evenly, so the lack of seats is almost impossible. However, there might be not enough room for the baggage.

Tickets are not always available. The reason is the same — buses in Vietnam are a popular type of transport, so the tickets should be bought in advance as there might not be any on site.


Booking tickets for Kiwitaxi shuttles Hanoi in advance, you eliminate both disadvantages of buses.
