by 34N118W

As with much of Southeast Asia, most everyone gets around Hanoi on bicycles or motos. You can rent a bicycle for around $1 dollar a day. Motos rent for around $7-$8 dollars a day. I personally don't know how to ride a moto, nor would I risk the chaotic traffic of Hanoi's streets (see Lao moto accident). Instead, I prefer to hire a moto driver to get me where I'm going. Make sure you negotiate the price before you go. They'll usually quote you three times higher than the actual price. What else is new, right? You can also go for a relaxing cyclo ride. Same rules apply as with the moto drivers.
