His travels continue…..

A crazy city where crossing the road is seemingly impossible and pavements only exist beneath scooters, tiny stools and street food vendors. With communism splattered all over the place, wandering the streets (especially the old quarter) is an interesting experience. With fantastic street food and the cheapest beer yet (40p) Hanoi is definitely up there with one of the best cities. A trip to the war museum, which contains dozens of old US Air Force planes and weaponry, and a visit to Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum (although closed) made for an interesting detour from the narrow and crowded streets. But saving the best till last – drinking beer on ‘beer corner’ – a seemingly never ending sprawl of tiny tables, stools and cheap draught beer.
