I'll be visiting Hanoi next week and right now am doing some itinerary and researching. I have a few questions about Hanoi and hope any of you could help...
- We only engage HanoiKids for half a day on one of the day. The remaining 2 days, we will be out on our own exploring Hanoi. Is it easy to navigate around by foot and with just a map? We will be staying at the Old Quarter, near Hon Kiem lake. In any case if we are lost, can we just approach anyone and ask for directions? They should be able to communicate in English right?
- Is it safe to walk around at night? We are planning to watch the puppet show at night and then linger around and walk back to our hotel
- If we were to get a taxi for 5 of us, does it mean that we have to split into 2 taxis? Is there a taxi that can accommodate all of us?
- how is the weather like in Hanoi in end Apr - early May? Very hot and sunny or rainy most of the time?
Thank you so much in advance :)
