Hanoi, Vietnam-Enjoying The Atmosphere Of The Old Quarter/Travel Tips

In this episode I spend more time walking through the atmospheric streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, in search of baguettes and other things for my morning breakfast. When I find myself on a slow travel trip, I will typically spend up to two weeks in one town or city. So if I know this in advance I will make sure I book a room in a guesthouse or hotel with a fridge so I can do some self-catering, mainly to take care of my breakfast needs. I still don’t want to miss out on trying what the locals eat for breakfast everyday but it’s nice to have some baguettes and tea or coffee before I head out in the early morning to captures images and check out the local markets. Usually in Hanoi I will want to stay in the Old Quarter so I can be right out in the chaos first thing plus it’s easy walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake, The French Quarter, and other sites. In this episode I also briefly touch on some of the scams, particularly the overcharging of tourists that quite often happens in the Old Quarter. Thanks so much for listening and as always your support!
