Hanoi is now a bustling, crowded and noisy city. I recently visited Hanoi, 16 years after my previous visit and the biggest change, apart from the population explosion, is that the bicycle has been replaced by the scooter. Yes it’s crowded, but there is so much to see just wandering the streets. The locals do their exercise by the road, buy their vegetables, do their business on the footpath and in the evening party on the footpath.
Visit Hanoi, it’s full of history, culture and engaging and friendly people.
