My tour of Hanoi included a ride on a cyclo through the old quarter of the city. It was quite an experience navigating through the busy streets on this three-wheeled vehicle, and I was glad that the elderly gentleman who rode the cyclo knew where he was going as I would have certainly gotten lost if I were to wander around by myself, not to mention probably being hit by one of the countless motorbikes!

The “hangs” of Hanoi are intricate in a sense that they define the old quarter of the city, and you could find anything and everything there. The name of each “hang” tells you the specialty of each area, so you would find a street with shops selling only jewelry or another selling only home appliances. Of course there’d be an area with an endless array of shoe shops, perhaps a good place to be if you need to prepare for your hike in Sapa!

I met some memorable tour guides during my trip to Vietnam, and one of them was Tien, who guided us during the Hanoi city tour. For a tour guide, every visitor of his group might seem the same to him, but a good tour guide can make the visitor’s day, like Tien did 😉 (See the original photo in colour.)

This fruit vendors carries the heavy weight of two large baskets on his shoulder. His work weighs down on him, just as life weighs down on all of us sometimes. We all carry substantial burdens in our daily endeavours, and sometimes all we want to do is let go of all of the weight and just rest a bit.

It was raining when I arrived in Hanoi, but the city was still a delight to explore. In sun or rain, wandering through the old quarter of the capital of Vietnam is an experience to remember. (See the original photo in colour.)
