Hanoi, Vietnam, taken on December 29, 2015

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!

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!

Huế, Vietnam, taken on December 28, 2015

In the imperial palace in Huế, Vietnam, one of my favourite features were the red elements in one of the temples, whether it’s the columns, roofs, lanterns, or doors. The entire felt so extravagant, yet so full of silence and serenity at the same time.
