Description

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and also its second largest city, is a fascinating blend of East and West, with Chinese influence from centuries of dominance, and French je ne sais quoi from its colonial past. It was largely unspoiled by the modern architecture of the 1970s and 80s, and is now undergoing a rapid transformation that makes it a rising star in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam is a very photogenic country. Or maybe my boyfriend is just a great photographer. Anyway, we really enjoyed our stay in Vietnam. We explored the north, starting in Hanoi. Hanoi is a nice city to walk around in and just eat where your nose takes you.
