a taste of Vietnam (ebook)
With a population of approx. 4 million people, Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam. Famous for its beautiful lakes, shaded boulewards, verdant public parks and its thriving old town centre - an architectural museum piece with blocks of ochre building retaining an air of the 1930s provincial French town. And then there's the scooters! The evocative old quarter is a great place to sample bia hoi (freshly brewed draught beer) in a microbar or drop into a cafe to taste the coffee Vietnamese sytle - very sweet! Stroll around the beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake to help soothe the challenge of trying to cross the roads of never-ending traffic!
