It happens to the best of us seasoned travelers. You get off the bus and all these people hop on to the bus and says transfer to the other bus. They take you for a ride in town close to the bus station but not there yet. They prey on you that you don’t know where you are and extort money for their ride to finish the connection to the bus station.
I spotted a taxi close by, so we grab our bags and head towards the taxi and that driver don’t want anything to do with the scam so he waves not available. Another taxi pulls up and pops his trunk and we quickly commandeered it and went inside. They now know that we have the upper hand and not reliant on them.
The taxi to the bus station cost a buck and that included 100 percent tip. Plus we it to our connection on time. Laugh it off and chalk it up ti another adventure in Vietnam ( Hue ).
