Having arrived in Hanoi on the 20th we had the day to explore this very crazy busy city, mopeds every where  – crossing the road is an assault on your senses because you just walk across while hundreds of mopeds just ride around you.

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known for its centuries-old architecture and a rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences. At its heart is the chaotic Old Quarter, where the narrow streets are roughly arranged by trade. There are many little temples, including Bach Ma, honoring a legendary horse, plus Đồng Xuân Market, selling household goods and street food.

This is a very typical busy Hanoi restaurant and basic to say the least although some of the places we visited for lunch later on the tour in the back and beyond of Vietnam were far more unsophisticated normally finding your selves in one room including the bed eating lunch.
