During our stay in Hanoi, we became fast friends with our food tour guide from Vietnam Awesome Travel, Nathan, and after a great night exploring the city for superb street food, Nathan offered to take us to experience karaoke in Vietnam the next night. At the local karaoke bar, we chose songs from YouTube, had the karaoke version of the music play on a big TV screen in the karaoke suite, and sang along to it. Because of this, we really did not need to worry about not finding songs that we could sing to. We were joined by four tour guides from Awesome Travel, who were in their twenties themselves - they all spoke wonderful English and offered us an experience that was a right balance of international and authentically Vietnamese. As they sang and partied with us, they introduced us to the local culture and night life. The karaoke night was by far one of the highlights of our time in Vietnam. Such wonderful people and great fun! A once-in-a-lifetime experience!
