I have never had so much trouble getting a fair price from motor bike taxis or pedel cycle taxis in any other city in the world. I see now that I should have agreed a price before sitting down and not believed the little books of written recommendations from other travellers that they have hidden about their bodies.
It was my first time travelling on my own, I was easy pickings. Even when I did agree a price, they upped it considerably at the end of the journey. In the end I would ask at reception a fair price from 'a' to 'b' and would pay my charge before getting in.
I loved Ho Chi Minh City, the market was a bit intense. I was pulled and pushed and shouted at relentlessly. When I saw a disfigured woman selling postcards I made sure to buy a stack from her only to find out she had been selling well over the odds. You have to laugh....don't you!
