Traffic in Hanoi is notorious for its chaotic mix of cars, buses, motorcycles, and bicycle rickshaws, known as cyclos.
The traditional way to explore Hanoi’s Old Quarter is by cyclo. You’ll feel like royalty (or maybe a bit conspicuous) as you’re pedaled around the bustling city on a padded tricycle. Rates start at 100,000d per hour. Tipping is not required or even expected, but giving your driver 10,000d is a nice gesture.
