    We spent maybe 45 minutes strolling through the temple. The architecture is nice, and it's worth your time to check out if you're already in Hanoi. I wore long pants and made sure my shoulders were covered before going, but I saw other tourists in tank tops and shorts who had no problem entering.

    Beautiful interior. High ceiling and one may be surprised to find a lovely cathedral in communist North Vietnam! Exterior unattractive with its concrete facade,

    The best word to describe my Experience with Ms Dao and Vietnam Moon travel, is "Amazing"
    Me and my sister travelled to Vietnam recently and were very anxious while planning our itenerary. Ms Dao have been very patient throughout our planning, she answered all our queries very calmly and promptly, we made so many changes everyday, still she suggested us best ways to cut down our cost and made a budget friendly itenerary.
    The moment we landed in Hanoi, the arrangements were pure luxury. From transfers to Day tours, all the guides and drivers we met were so friendly and helpful.Since we are vegetarians, Ms Dao made sure we could get vegetarian options everywhere.
    The list of praising her would be never ending. I would recommend everyone, if you are making a booking with her, it's 100% genuine and you won't regret a bit.

    Worth a look make sure to check train timetable as you don’t want to hang around there too long, nothing much else to do there though you can have a drink whilst waiting

    I had wanted to check out the bridge since it was designed by Gustave Eiffel. I only wanted to ride over it on a Grab bike but every time I requested on the app from around the city, it didn't have the route going over that bridge. I literally needed to walk to the Long Bien cafe at the end of the Log Bien bridge to ensure the route the motorbike would take. The bridge is only used now by motorbikes and pedestrians. Also the traffic goes in opposite directions. I'm glad I didn't walk over but rode over as the walk didn't seem that nice (or picturesque) with screaming motorbikes whizzing by you in a super narrow space. The bridge feels jenky when riding on it which adds to the experience. I can't believe it has become an IG spot, the bridge doesn't seem safe at all to walk but since the trains still go over it like 4-5 times per day, I'm sure it's fine.
    Either way, it's definitely an experience. Glad I did it once, probably won't go back but neat to say that I did another iron work by Gustave Eiffel. I wish they would decorate with lights at night so you can see it from afar or from the skybars, but due to the age and no upkeep, I could see putting up lights being an issue. It was still pretty cool experience, just don't expect too much.

    It’s a street full of clothing shops and restaurants. Nothing too survey in my opinion.

    I learned that each street in the area is named after a certain item sold like silk, fish sauce, goat meat, flowers, etc.

    That round have been helpful for me to know ahead of time side I only had short window of time to find pure silk. Most stores sold silk blend- whatever that means.

    The place is about 35 km away from the city centre of Hanoi. It is a lovely place to learn about the Vietnamese culture. Definately recommended!

    We found ourselves immersed in the strategic layout and historical significance of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. Its architectural grandeur left us in awe. A casual yet enriching experience for us.

    As mentioned already, the mural is not in a good location, however, it is a thing of beauty and I would have liked to see it close up. I didn't have time to investigate but feel that at nearly 4,000 metres long there must be a part of it that is accessible on foot?
    Was still nice to see from our bus a few times and interesting to see the traditional narrow houses that are along this stretch that are so typical of Vietnam.

    Looks so pretty at night when it is lit up and you walk around the lake. Unfortunately there is no public access to it. It adds a bit of magic to the lake.

    Cute, quaint and comes as a bit of a surprise in the maize of narrow bustling streets of Hanoi's old Quarter, thus adding a historical touch to the surroundings. There may be more imposing city gates in the world.

    Interesting little temple squashed between shops down an alleyway.
    Interesting to see bottles of scotch left as an offering

    This small temple is in the heart of the Old Quarter. Its mainly used by locals and seemed to be pretty quiet I.e. no Crowds. A nice place for a quick visit in Old Quarter.

    Very fortunate to have some friends in Hanoi take us round the city on their scooters. One of the stops was the citadel.
    July in Hanoi is not cool but getting to visit this place with a local is.
    Always interesting to learn a little history but the addition of a local perspective added a lot. Vietnam's history is full of other nations trying to impose their will on this beautiful country. Staring at the empty space where ancient buildings were removed by the French. Climbing down into the underground bunker where leaders sheltered from Us bombardment. So many reminders here of a peace and independence achieved at great cost.
