I was approached by a trishaw rider this morning at hcmc opera house. He told me the charge is 15,000 dong per trip or per hour. I douvle confirmed with him it is 15,000 dong per hour and he said yes. I think its ok. So asked him to take me around the town.
It took around 2.5 hours and at the end of the trip, he stop by the middle of the road, and show me a rate table 15,000,000 dong per hour and total 45,000,000 dong!
I sure denied to pay and make him very angry. Finally he ask me to pay him 15,000,000 dong but i insisted i shall pay him 45,000 dong only as per our agreed rate. As he did not agreed with my rate,Finally i paid him a reasonable half day tour rate at 25usd
