Hoi An Travel Scam

by femdem06 Online Now Aug 28, 2007 at 3:46 PM

Especially if you are a woman or women traveling alone, please DO NOT use the Hoi An Tourist Office (on the corner of Tran Phu and Le Loi, 78 Le Loi) in Hoi An to book a taxi to the airport. Their driver, Chum (license plate 8565), will pretend to get really pissed off about something and drag you (and throw your stuff) onto the side of a rural road and refuse to take you to your destination unless you pay him extra money. He is a big guy, absolutely insane and a very dangerous, and although the travel agency is well aware of this, they still make people go with him. Avoid using their services; there are plenty of other travel agencies in town!!!

    Better put this interesting tip in a “Hoi An“ VT page. The info will be available for future travellers. This forum is for questions only and probably it will be removed by VT staff.
    Even if not removed, it will disappear soon as the forums have a quick turnover and in a few days (at the very last) all you work typing this advice will be lost more or less.
