Huế to Hà Nội

We took the train from Huế to Hà Nội
A very comfortable journey with super friendly train staff
(did I mention how easy it was to book the train tickets too?)

Upon reaching Hà Nội, we walked around the Hoàn Kiếm Lake
which is located in the key area of capital city.
It is another of these public spaces where people enjoy
and that makes Vietnam such a wonderful place.

However the lake. was undergoing some water draining
and did not look as clean and pristine as the last time around.hanoi1hanoi2

As we walked around, we could see that
Hà Nội was also in the mood for tết 2018.hanoi0hanoi4

For dinner, we got to try the famous Bun Cha of Hà Nội
which even Obama enjoyed with some bia (beer) in one of these joints.hanoi3
