"Take the rickshaw" Bicycle Tip by K.Knight
Bicycle, Xi'an: 4 reviews and 6 photos
Anne wanted a go "on this little number" to get us back to the hotel. We missed out in Beijing, so not wanting pass up an opportunity, we hopped in.
Compared to a taxi, they are not very cheap and they are certainly not as safe! Taking us from the Drum Tower and the Muslim Quarter back to our motel turned out to be an adventure in itself.
We bartered the price of 25 YUAN and jumped in. The engine roared to life, as did the driver, and I don’t think the horn stopped blasting for the entire trip. We passed by the locals so close, and at such speed, that I am sure that skin was removed from some elbows.
The driver then stopped suddenly, in the middle of town, and said “can’t go further, police. You get out here!” Luckily we were only 2 blocks from the motel!
