Hanoi in a Collage of Dimensions: A Photo Journey

By Mark Wiens 3 Comments

Welcome to the fascinating world of Hanoi, Vietnam…

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,

hanoi shopping

but luckily you can conveniently transport anything you buy,

motorcycles in hanoi

the city is caked with layers of ancient history…


so grab a Hanoian drink of choice,


indulge in a little street food,


and a little more…


and then a little more,


and explore the streets of the Old Quarter,


check out the diverse range of buildings,


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


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


maybe a bamboo smoke or an ice cream bar?,


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!


Welcome to Hanoi – A city with over a 1000 years of history!

Hanoi is an incredible city promising a million forms of entertainment wherever you look (try to look everywhere)!
