Cyclo is a typical vehicle with three wheels for tourists to explore Hue City. The cyclo is convenient because of its big seat and roof. They can be used to carry goods, but many of them transfer passengers to explore Hue City politely and safely.

Currently, in Hue, cyclo services are the most attractive and suitable in the inner city. When sitting on a cyclo, the guest can take leisure time while the rider rides around the beautiful city.

It is easy to find some groups of cyclo at many hotels along Le Loi Streets, such as in front of Huong Giang Hotel, Century Hotel, Saigon Morin Hotel, Azerai La Residence Hotel Spa, or at Pham Ngu Lao Street, or Ben Nghe Street.

Notes: Be careful when you use cyclos by yourself to travel around the city. You have to make sure the price and distance clearly before getting on it. A scam is not uncomfortable feelings if you face it.

Motorbikes and bicycles

Motorbikes are the most popular vehicle in Vietnam as well as in Hue City. You can find rental locations of motorcycles in Hung Vuong Street, near the intersection of Vincom Plaza.

Electricity Cars

Hue offers electricity cars to serve tourists to move around the city and to tourist destinations. However, the price is still high, so not many guests use this kind of vehicle.

Many electricity cars often stop at Saigon Morin Hotel, at 30 Le Loi Street, Hue City.
