We arrived in Hanoi at around 8am after a very warm nights sleep on the bus. As per usual when we got off the bus in Hanoi we were besieged by numerous taxi drivers wanting to take us to a really good hotel that they know. We managed to fight them off for a while then get one who could take us all to our hotels.
Again, the hotel that Manisha chose was a really nice place for us to spend our last few days in Vietnam together. Went to get some food as we had missed out on a proper breakfast. After our nice lunch in Cafe 69, we headed off to start the Lonely Planet walking tour. After the open market where they were preparing meat, fish, frogs and snails, I started to get a little hot and think the food smell got to me a little, so we had to return to the hotel. Chilled out there and I got some much needed sleep.
Went out again in the evening and had a wander around the lake and back into the old quarter for food. Had a nice dinner at Hanoi Gardens and then headed off back to the hotel for a nice sleep in our very comfy beds!
