    The best transport is the Grab but if you prefer the taxicab, the standard is to take a picture of the name of the taxicab and send it to someone. In case there is something wrong with the driver then at least you can trace him. In traveling always take care of your belongings when you are alone.

    I am not a Grab user so I just take the regular taxicab when I have no car. The first problem with taxicabs is the rarity during rush hour. It is like looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. The next problem, especially for foreigners, is the driver that wants a pre-arranged contract of payment which means the taxi meter will not be used. You can expect a very high charge for that.
