xe ôm: ‘motorbike hug’

… Or, more commonly, moto-taxi. Yep, this is one of the easiest way to travel inside the city when you don’t have a bike yourself, and, more importantly, if you’re not too averse to taking risks.

Naturally, you must bargain the fare before you start your journey and it is generally considerably more difficult to get a good price if you’re a foreigner. Still, it remains quite inexpensive; so go ahead and try it out!
