I loved it! Although it can get messy at times, but Hanoi has lots of scenic lake and awesome old buildings. Not to mention it also has great foods
Great time roaming the streets and especially around the lake early morning
Amazing place. One must visit. Food is amazing. And best part of is people at the country.
Although I enjoyed Saigon/HCMC and I think it's worth a visit, if you're short on time in Vietnam I recommend visiting Hanoi. It gives you a taste of many of the best facets of Vietnam culture (including the food!) Explore for a few days at a minimum.
