Airport-hotel private transfer, Whale Island area?


we're considering staying for a few days in one of the more remote "Nha Trang" resorts, like Whale Island or Some Days of Silence. Since it's like a 1,5-2h ride one way from the airport, can you recommend any reasonable private transport option (apart from taking the hotel offer which is usually quite overpriced)?

Is a metered taxi ride an option and does it make sense?

Do you know any reliable local transport companies that I can arrange it with beforehand, in order to minimize time lost at the airport trying to negotiate a fare with someone there?

Thanks for all tips!

Whale island would be more than a 2 hr drive from the airport. Once you have decided on hotel / resort check there price. You can then get a local travel agent to give you a price which I'm sure will be cheaper. You can PM me and I will give you the details of the company I deal with.

You can of course just negotiate a price from on of the many taxis at the airport but don't go on the meter, it will be expensive.
