Saigon, Your Secret Ubers Have Arrived!


Only in Saigon can you feast on a 50,000d bowl of pho ga, and then head straight across the street to sip on a Manhattan that will cost you as much as a Mai Tai in NYC.  Famous for the juxtaposition of modern and traditional styles, the merging of Eastern and Western cultures, and the fusing of both past and present, Saigon now has a modern yet affordable way to get around town.  Today, your Uber has arrived in Vietnam.

Actresses Hong Anh and Chi Pu, singer Hoang Thuy Linh, and blogger Nicky Khanh Ngoc were the first to jump at the chance to try Uber out for a ride on the town.  They downloaded the Uber app, and within 10 minutes, a luxurious Uber was able to whisk them away to a movie set, a recording studio, and a photo shoot.  We’ll let you figure out who went where.  Meanwhile, for the next two weeks, you can download the Uber app and ride Uber for FREE!
