Vietnam Transportation: 212 reviews and 180 photos


A ride in a cyclo or pedicab, like riding a tuk tuk in Bangkok, is one of those must-dos when you visit Vietnam. There are thousands of cyclo drivers that can be hired by the hour or by kilometer. Most cyclo drivers in the south speak a little English. They can be indispensable guides and good sources of historical information.
A nice way to tour a city is to rent a cyclo. You can pick up a cyclo along any main street almost any time of the day. It is essential to bargain with cyclo drivers. As a rule, half their first offer and work up. When you settle on a price, be sure you have exact change.
