Been really busy and focusing more on my tech blogs, surprisingly the readership for this blog has been up even though I hardly update. So sorry my dear readers – I will do my best to update this blog more often!
Anyways, I’m in Hanoi now and just wanted to have a quick gripe about the horrible taxi situation here in Hanoi. And I thought Singapore was bad.
Here, a simple journey of say 3-4km costs like S$10. The meter ticks at S$0.10 every 10 metres. One U-turn is like 50cents SGD.
This is based on my few experiences with the cabs here which I hailed from the streets.
Seriously… how do people survive over here?
See my gripe at CNET Asia about the internet connection here… zzz
Having made all these gripes, I do think Hanoi is a much nicer looking city compared to Ho Chi Minh (with the exception of their upmarket District 7)
