We did this at the beginning of our RailDiscoveries adventure. Superb experience and one of the highlights for sight, smell and see how people exist in the small streets. A definite must do and well worth the experience.

Don't shy away from negotiating the price with the rickshaw driver, but don't take it too seriously either. Enjoy the ride, the crowd, the noise, the smells and, most importantly, the many near-death accidents you are likely to experience. So much fun ...
