The city is full of carts drawn by small horses rather than oxen, and you’re likely to see scads of them trotting swiftly around, ferrying goods and helping out on local construction sites (Ha Tinh). They function much the way cyclos do elsewhere in the country — the drivers hanging around waiting for customers who require something large and heavy to be lugged from point A to point B. They’ll even offer to give you a bumpy ride wherever you’re headed, price negotiable. They make for good pics, but the drivers will usually ask you to pay for the privilege of taking a snap.
