Admire the vibrant shop fronts, colorful lanterns, and pretty temples as you glide down the maze-like lanes. Along the way, peek into the shops, sample some delicious street food, admire the Cha Tam Church, and gain an insight into the ancient practice of Chinese medicine as you visit a traditional practitioner.

Very enjoyable experience. The tour guide Anh was great. She picked us up at the hotel on time and my husband and I had such a fun time riding the cyclo around Chinatown areas. if you'd like to ride on the Cyclo but do not want to deal with Cyclo Scam use this tour.
