Have been here twice before ...love it ...sitting on the corner having a beer...watching the people and the bikes...eating ...shopping and just soaking in the atmosphere. The people are not pushy...not like Saigon..My Hotel was in the Old Quarter also...which is a must if you stay here in Hanoi.

Yes it's nice just to walk about and see the different sights and shops, restaurants etc. but for some reason it didnt seem 'real' it felt was highly geared towards tourism and may hav elost its charm to please the tourist industry.

Vietnam. Beautiful Old Hanoi Quarter Vietnam... ! I went with my partner and we had an absolute blast. Some friends had recommended we get a tour because they started getting tours in the last half of their trip and said it was better. We went with Kim Tour on a couple of different days. The old Quarter was amazing. We bought some special silver pictures from a little hole in the wall shop. Gorgeous! The old buildings are really what I loved though. Awesome.

... And then I found myself wanting to escape the traffic and fumes. But it was god fun, lots of street food, lots of interesting restraints, plenty of bars to watch the world go by.. Cheap living.

Very peaceful and relaxing ! Heaps of good priced restaurants... Great place for a romantic getaway...... A few too many tourists.. but the locals in general are very lovely. The hawkers can get a bit annoying though.. Just drink more cheap beer :)
