Sit back and experience the city’s hectic life from the seat of a cyclo. Vietnam’s big cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, can be hectic and, not least, the traffic culture is a bit different than most people are used to. And it can be a little stressful to move around with children until you find yourself in the Vietnamese traffic habits.
A good introduction to the Vietnamese cities, both in terms of traffic, local people and sights, is from the seat of a cyclo.
A cyclo is a bike where you sit on a comfortable seat in front of your bike driver. The seats fit an adult and a smaller child. The driver follows the traffic in a calm flow, and you sit on the first parquet to experience the sights, the noisy streets, street vendors pushing carts with fresh flowers and stalls selling colorful crafts.
