The experience of Hanoi Old Quarter Cyclo is fantastic. It is un-missable for any who want to experience the true authentic Vietnam etiquettes.
The cyclo is a three-wheel bicycle taxi in Vietnam. It is a kind of rickshaw with a seat at the front for passengers and the driver at the back. For more about this vehicle, see here.
Take a two-hour cyclo tour around Hanoi Old Quarter as well as stunning historical and cultural sites in the city centre is a magnificent experience that you feel the sound, the smell, the noise, the face features of people along the roads as the cyclo moving is rather slow. It’s a good idea to have a camera to hand to capture the scenes of daily life of city, traders, small restaurants, old balconis, beautiful windows, sidewalks…and this can arouse your emotion much long later.
