This happens so often in VN. Deeply disappointed though we are, we are trying our best to protect our visitors.
The average taxi fare in VN is between 14.000 to 17.000 per km. It is advisable to preview your travel distance in Google Map to estimate how much you need to pay.
For example, since the journey from TSN Airport to Ben Thanh Market in District 1 is approximately 10km, a payment in the region of 150,000 to 200,000VND (~$10) is desirable. Any higher price would be a clear indication of deliberate rip-off.
You can report or share your experience to others on the AskVietnamese website. We would love to hear more from you. Sincerely, it's the tourists who can help the most by sharing their own experience!
