How to Get Around Southeast Asia Using a Ride-Sharing App

I was almost in Southeast Asia this week to take a ride on Singapore Airlines’s new 787-10 (here’s my review of the plane). You can bet that if I was in Singapore, I’d be using a ride-sharing app like Uber instead of taxis to save money. However, it looks like Uber is no longer in operation there. , “Uber has officially pulled out of Southeast Asia and sold its operations there to major local rival Grab.”

—the Southeast Asia ride-sharing app formerly known as GrabTaxi/MyTeksi—supposedly has the largest pool of drivers in Southeast Asia. It runs similar to the way Uber runs except that it offers not only taxis and private cars but motorcycle taxis, as well. Based on some of the reviews (which could be coming from disgruntled employees or the competition), I wouldn’t rely on Grab as a first choice or for last-minute booking quite yet—some wrote that Grab can be unreliable and make you wait—but still most of the reviews have been positive (4.1/5 on and 4.4/5 out on ).
