Hanoi City Tour Excursion Reviews
Excellent tour guide who explained much about vietnamese culture. The links to the Vietnam war could not be missed, but were covered in a factual rather than triumphant manner. The old town was an astonishing mix of people and motorbikes - an experience that is not available in the west. Ho Chi Minh memorial was very impressive - but one cannot avoid wondering about the cost to an essentially poor country. It is easy to describe as unspoilt and charming, which it was - but it was also obviously fairly poor and I suspect the people living there might prefer a liitle less charm and a little more prosperity.
