Hanoi

Hanoi, elegant and exotic, is a charming town with intense energy that emerges from urban life, its lakes, its leafy streets, the thousands of bikes that pass without stopping and its old town with its narrow streets full of activities with its Temples, pagodas and museums, not to mention the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. The main interest is to simply walk. Overindulging streets with shops of all kinds, outdoor markets, see people with their conical hats, women wearing the traditional costume elegant, students, bicycles and motorcycles circulating. Then there are all those people who cook and eat on the street, sitting on small plastic chairs that seem to be reserved for children.
