Cyclos are an interesting way to take in the city. They feature a giant cushioned seat for passengers strapped to a bicycle propelled through traffic by a cyclo driver. Negotiate a price beforehand about VND60,000 (Ho Chi Minh City) per hour, and make sure to have the exact change. Cycling through the city is a hard job and deserves a tip.
Local insight: A cyclo tour is a great way to see Binh Tay Market in D5 of Ho Chi Minh City
