I was done near the Ben Thanh market and a cyclo driver asked me where I wanted to go as I was looking at my map. I told him the war museum and then back to my hotel. He said 50,000 dong and I said OK and made it clear to him that he would have to wait for me and take me back to the hotel for 50,000 dong. All was well and good until we got back to the hotel and I wen to give him the 50,000 dong. He seemed offended and said that he had to wait one hour and that it should be 200,000 dong. I said no and tried to hand him the money but he refused to take it. I walked away and he kept following and refused to take the money each time I tried to give it to him. I walked into the hotel and gave the receptionist the money and told him to give it to the cyclo driver and walked up to my room. Like others have said write the agreed price down before you start and hopefully avoid such an nasty confrontation at the end. It will be interesting if I go back downstairs and he is still there. It's cyclo driver's like him that give themselves a bad name and in the end lose customers. I didn't try to get him down to a lower price after he said 50,000 because they quote over the odds in the first place. What he didn't know was that I was going to ask him back later this afternoon and have him take me somewhere else and was prepared to pay a bit more.
