Welcome to the fascinating world of Hanoi, Vietnam…

Jump out of your armchair and join the sea of motorcycle traffic…

Hanoi moto traffic

the shopping may drive you a little insane,

but luckily you can conveniently transport anything you buy,

the city is caked with layers of ancient history…

so grab a Hanoian drink of choice,

indulge in a little street food,

hanoi-noodles

and a little more…

hanoi-vegetables

and then a little more,

and explore the streets of the Old Quarter,

check out the diverse range of buildings,

hanoi-important

and don’t forget stop and look at the details…

hanoi-carrots

you’ll need a few of the local guilty pleasures like donuts…or guts,

hanoi-guts-donuts

maybe a bamboo smoke or an ice cream bar?,

hanoi-pleasures

try to observe the people who serve you,

and by the end of the day, you’ll need a recharging power nap…

ohhh, and don’t forget to choose your meat along the way!
