Vietnam is surely a beautiful place, the whole South East Asia has got something magical... Maybe only because it is just so different from Western cultures, but it amazes me.

One of my friends was in Hanoi for over a week and said she loved it, the people were super nice and it was all like a different universe - in a positive way. :P

The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi. It is an ideal destination to see, to do and to experience. I like it so much. I went to Vietnam 2 times. Each time, I spent 3- 4 days in Hanoi. A peaceful and beautiful city with many wonderful sites, museums, ancient temples and pagodas, delicious food and especially, friendly local people. I walked around Hoan Kiem Lake, breath fresh air, see fisherman, people doing morning exercise. It offered me to get away hustle and bustle daily life. Taking a cyclo in the Old Quarter in Hanoi is very exciting. A good way to see, to explore Hanoi style. The museum of Ethnology and The Temple of Literature attract many visitors: students of all levels, elderly people... I met a group of students of a primary school. They are lovely, nice. They always say "Hello" when they meet foreigners. I really like them and took photos with them. they only said some basic english words but I liked them very much.
I also spent some days in other destinations such as Halong Bay, Sapa, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. All of them are beautiful and worth to see.
I appreciated Vietnamese food. Vegetable and fruits are fresh. Vietnamese dishes are delicious. I am interested in food Street. Delicious with special taste and cheap cost.
However, traffic in Vietnam is terrible. Many people break law.
