This is the first time we travel to Vietnam. Upon arrival in Hanoi, we're very impressed to the traffic. The streets are narrow, many motorbikes, cars ... especially at the rush hours. We stayed at a hotel in the center of Old Quarter, it is a bit noisy. Hanoi with more than 1000 years of history has many cultural and historic sites that attract the tourists. We visited Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum, the Temple of Literature, Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Ethnology, Museum of History and enjoyed Water Puppet Show before have dinner. You don't miss street food, especially Pho (rice noodle, beef or chicken, vegetable and broth), you should ask your tour guide or tour operator, and they will show you places where you can try it. I think Hanoi is very different and I love it.
