Back in Hanoi

Vietnam has a special place in my heart.

I visited Ho Chi Minh thrice and this trip is my second trip in Hanoi.

I love the scenic spots, the food, the warm hospitality of the people, the culture and shopping.

I arrived past midnight via Cebu Pacific Air's promo flight and waited an hour for my ride to the hotel but it did not arrive. I boarded a taxi to Old Quarter.

I'm back on the same hotel and at the same bed!

Day 1 

During my last visit last year, I wanted to have a city tour but my schedule was really tight. The primary reason was going to Halong Bay!

This time I made it possible to have a city tour. Unfortunately, I forgot the name the of the tour guide for that day. City tour using the motor cycle is the cheapest mode to enjoy the said tour.

And off we go to our city tour!

First stop was the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

Second stop was the Ho Chi Minh Museum.

Then, the Hoan Kiem Lake and the One Pillar Pagoda.

Afterwards, we visited two temples.

And the last stop for the day was the Military Museum.

After a tiring day, Bun Cha!

Day 2 

I paid for another tour called Hoa Lu & Tom Coc Tour.

First in the itinerary is the Old Vietnam.

We visited the Ding and Le Temple.

After the visit to the Old Vietnam, our next stop was Ninh Binh. But before that we biked around  the rice fields. 

Ninh Binh is said to be the Halong Bay in land. Halong bay is Halong Bay. It is one of the eight wonders of the world. But if you do not have time to go there, then this the best alternative!

We rowed along the canal.  Enjoyed its scenic beauty. 

This adventure is a-must in Hanoi!

Relaxing sight!

After the tour, I went back to the city and did a bit of shopping.

And enjoyed the various noodles and food in Hanoi...

I forgot their names but their taste lingered.

Bye Hanoi!
