saigon 002.jpg (39033 bytes) The best way to get around Saigon is  by cyclo.   Most of the drivers are ex soldiers of the South Vietnamese army  or their sons and they make charming and interesting guides.   The first time you are launched into a busy intersection ahead of your driver can be a hair raising experience.
Cyclos cost about $100 US to buy and few of the drivers own their own. saigon 310.jpg (39907 bytes)
