What can I do while in Hanoi?

It was a quick 3 days spent in Hanoi for my business trip. Got in on Wednesday midday and out on Friday the same time… So what did I manage to do on the travel side? Remember the term “bleisure” that Yahoo! travel coined? Yeah did some of that.

Once business was over, we did have a little of “leisure” time. Perhaps dodging the traffic snarls of the city on a rickshaw was one.

We had strength in numbers

 

But then, no exploration of any city will be complete without a walk in its old quarters. The sights, sounds and smells (that waft to you) that once get when strolling through the town can be intriguing as it was the first experience for most of us (me and colleagues). Tell the ladies to stop bargaining!

Now I had too many photos of the meals we had and there will not be sufficient space to deck them out here in a blog post. See them in the next newsletter!
