I HAVE just returned from Vietnam and what impressed me most about the country was the efficient taxi service in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
Metered taxis are readily available and willing to take you to any destination without any hassle.
The drivers that I came across were very courteous and polite.
For a foreigner like me, the fear of being cheated was not there at all.
I cannot help but compare their service and what we have back in Kuala Lumpur.
Here we hear about foreigners being overcharged, taken for a ride and cheated.
In a developing country like Malaysia it is indeed very sad to note the existence of these ill-mannered taxi drivers.
Their actions tarnish the good image of Malaysia. Much has been done but the problem still exists. What else could we do?
