Again! Back in the bustling chaos that is Hanoi. Bleary eyed after rolling off the night train at 6am and unable to check into our hotel until 3pm!!!
So we while away a few early morning hours people watching. And Hanoi is very very full of people!
Whether they are wheeling their fresh produce along the street or making a scented spectacle.
Hanoi is a heady mix of modern and deeply traditional. Rich and incredibly poor. Old ways still pervade in a city swathed in pollution from a million mopeds.
We stumble across this group of energetic young dancers practising their routines.
This seems to be a favourite past time for young Vietnamese as you’ll see lots of groups of teens dancing or improvising on the street.
Then finally we can check into our final hotel of the journey, the glorious The Light Hotel.
One of the few hotels in Hanoi that can boast of a (very vertiginous) rooftop pool!
A perfect place to cool down and relax after humid, gritty days sight seeing in the busy city. Up here you could be a million miles away from the grimy chaos below!!
