We arrived in Hanoi on Sunday night after spending the day in Hong Kong . We have definitely arrived in another world, and we love it. It is noisy, chaotic and assaults all your senses.
Our hotel is great, and were surprised by a honeymoon cake. Wonderful.
We are walking for hours each day as we explore. Which is good as the food is amazing. We booked a street food tour yesterday which gave us the confidence to give it a go ourselves. My goodness. We tried several different noodle soups, spring rolls including crab ones, coffee with frozen yoghurt, and of course hanoi beer. We visited a local market where it became apparent the locals understand freshness and quality.
Today is museum day. More walking and I am sure more delicous experiences.
