A quick highlight of our Hanoi city tour

Right before our Hokkaido trip, we went on a 4 days 3 night Hanoi / Halong Bay trip with our company and before I completely forget about this trip, I shall do a quick blog of some highlights. The number of pictures in my phone is accumulating and I really need to start blogging before my next trip! I’m going Tioman in the coming weekend! Weeee. Saving

So. In this first post, I will be sharing some of the sights in Hanoi city and in the second post I will be sharing on Halong Bay.

Like many Asian cities, Hanoi is a bustling city filled with life!

In Hanoi, we visited and watched the water puppet show. It is an interesting cultural experience but I personally find it too draggy and the show is too long. It was interesting for the first 15 – 20 mins. Haha.

Another interesting place in Hanoi is to visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and if given a chance, you should go in to take a look at Uncle Ho while he rest there peacefully. His body is preserved and protected in there and it is available for public viewing for a limited time each day.

Old Quarters in Hanoi is great for buying souveniors, paintings and knock off sports bags. It is great visiting either in the day or at night!

At night, this place is equally lively!

There are many tourists and locals in the middle of the Old Quarters enjoying beer and street snacks while people watching. Just next to the Old Quarters is  a small park and lake where you can tour around and enjoy some peace in this busy city.
