Frist of all, we would like to take note about transportation. Many ways to transfer from Ho Chi Minh central to Cu Chi. By local taxi, it is already whenever you want but you have to pay per km and maybe surcharge. By bus, maybe cheaper, but you can not stop on the way. Therefore, we decided using Saigon Private Taxi Transfer Service. Stop on the way, only pay per way and friendly driver are good points of Saigon Private Taxi.
