At a glance (and this is at night mind you), Hanoi is a lot of lights and loud traffic buzz. Imagine an Asian version of Chilenje, with a sprinkling of French architecture. Then add 5 million scooters to a population of 8 million people in one city.
Hanoi is wonderfully chaotic! There is food every ten paces, throngs of people and the risk of death whenever you cross the road.
It is it’s own kind of madness and just delightfully charming.
And the food is absolutely delish!!
