    Hanoi - Part 1

    I miss Hanoi although I dont really like the place. Bad air conditions, roads are narrow, horrible traffic, found thieves in tourist attractions, don understand their language, and the list goes on......

    The bad air caused my nose to bleed... T___T
    Asked the tour guide why was the air so bad and looked hazy, he said:" It is fog." ME: Speechless... If the air quality is good hor, why most of the Vietnamese in Hanoi are wearing masks leh?


    Hanoi - Dear's family trip in March, 2008

    First destination after hotel check-in, it has been more than a year, I cant even remember the name of the place, the lake named Ho kiam lake or something if I am not mistaken...





    I cant remember the name or the story about this famous red bridge. Sign of getting old... T___T




    The puppet show - around RM4 for a one hour show. A very boring show.


    For those who drink (I mean beer), good news for you. Heineken - USD$1 per bottle only.

    Food wise: Their authentic breakfast is a kind of bread which is as hard as stone... Like French toast, just that the shape is different. For those who dont take beef, ask before u order, make sure the soup based is without beef. For those who take beef, do try their Beef Noodles...

    Vietnamese coffee: Err... very bitter. By the time the coffee is brewed using the Metal drip filter, hot coffee will become warm coffee liow.... I personally dont really like it. But I bought the Metal drip filter and some Vietnamese Coffee powder...

    You will not need an alarm clock in Hanoi. At 6a.m. sharp, you will be woken up by the horn. Good Luck!

    Note: Not much photos taken during Hanoi trip cause I haven't started blogging yet...
