My driver picked me up at my hotel and took me to the airport for my flight to Ha Noi. The flight was uneventful, which was good. I also got an exit row seat with extra legroom!

On arrival at Ha Noi, my driver picked me up and took me to my hotel. As usual, I grabbed my camera and a map and headed out to Hoàn Kiếm Lake in the centre of the town.

I saw walked over the red bridge to Đền Ngọc Sơn Temple and a bit around the lake. I was also asked by some young people to practice their English, which I happily did, until one person asked me to go to a restaurant with them. I had read about such scams (not sure if this was one or not…), so I decided it was probably time for me to head back to my hotel and look for something for dinner.

The young guy at the reception of the hotel suggested I eat at Quán Ăn Ngon which is a Vietnamese hawker-style restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. I had some soup and spring rolls and lemon soda to drink as I was so thirsty! (Actually I had 2 of them they were so refreshing).

Ha Noi at night is not as busy has Saigon, but it is still chaotic!
