Hanoi is an old rustic looking town, we went there at the end of 2010 which coincided with the town's 1ooo (one thousand) year anniversary. Walking around this city , I felt as though I was transported back into time... seeing and walking though temples, buildings and streets that has been there for centuries was surreal.
Hanoi also many lakes as well, most famous is probably the "Hoan Kiem Lake" . The wonderful sceneries around Hanoi, could "ALMOST" make one forget the constant honking of the motorbikes and cars.
After the wonderful sightseeing, the wonderful feast came in true Vietnamese colours.
Tomato based fried Fish
Herbal pork stew, cooked in coconut
Crabmeat fried with sugarcane shoots
Caramelized Banana and Pineapple
We ate like Kings again, thanks to our guide. Although the meal was gorgeous... the funny thing was the plain white rice was the last dish to arrive ... after we ate all the dishes(including desert) except for two leafs of vegetables. I guess they must have forgot about the rice or the rice was actually the desert ,but no complains... it the whole meal pretty good.
Anything funny happened to you lately?
