Bustling Hanoi

How would you like to take a photo of a local rock star having a meal on the streets of your city? Well, that was one of the things that Mel did when he was in Hanoi. You see, it was part of a business trip and when there was free time to roam the city, he took up the challenge. But then we also came by the city on the way to the countryside too in a separate journey.

So here’s the thing. Hanoi is a city that is transforming fast.

But it still have a lot of the old mixed in with the new. Which can sometimes make for a confusing melange. You know it is all amazing with the traffic in the sense it is both chaotic while yet flowing endlessly it seems. Which makes it a challenge to get around on your own, on foot that is when you have to cross roads…

Despite all of this, we are determined that we come back again. Because aside from having quite a few unchecked items on the list, we also found the food to be extremely attractive. For not only did we have Vietnamese, but we also had French – yes French! So much has been retained when it comes to culinary influence that you have to come to savor it for yourselves.

Find out what we did in Hanoi here and why we want to come back. What did you like about Hanoi?
