Last stop after a month in Vietnam in the capital Hanoi.
Found a great little hotel for £3.80 a night including breakfast! The small things keeping you happy, it also had a comfortable bed, black out blind, air con and a TV with some western stations! Had the best sleep in weeks!!
Just one full day in the capital, we spent it touring the city on foot. Visited the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, the war museum, French colonial prison, the city lake and a few local places on route. Stopping off for some local beer was good as it was 35 degrees and clear skies all day!
The museums had a very old communist feel to them, quite dated in appearance and very strong on the anti western propaganda; all interesting to see though!
In the evening we hit the busy bar district, found some cheap local food and beer to use up our remaining Dong. Managed to do the night on under £10 each, food and drink!
Flight today from Hanoi to Borneo. 7 days planned in Borneo with jungle treks and a visit to various animal sanctuary's, should be good!
