The best way to get around Saigon is by cyclo.   Most of the drivers are ex soldiers of the South Vietnamese army or their sons and they make charming and interesting guides.   The first time you are launched into a busy intersection ahead of your driver is a hair raising experience
 
Cyclos cost about $100 US to buy and few of the drivers own their own

Bicycles are used for transporting everything, you name it they will transport it, from locals and visitors to building materials, produce to livestock, ice to furniture. 

Not to mention pretty girls
