Uber is continuing its expansion in Asia by launching in Saigon, Vietnam. This is Uber’s second city in Asia after expanding to Hong Kong. Vietnam has a population of around 90 million so it is a large market for Uber. By expanding to Vietnam, Uber will be competing against Malaysian rival Grabtaxi. Grabtaxi entered Vietnam in February. Uber currently serves over 100 cities worldwide, including 26 in Asia Pacific.
