Hanoi & Halong Bay - - World Heritage
visit Vietnam, got to try PHO (เฝอ), their local noodles
look at their seasoning, they use ส้มจี๊ด for the sour taste. everything is fresh.
This is where we stayed in HALONG BAY. It's a new hotel (in 2005).
ready to take off
it's the boat we're on. just realised that it's 2 stars
It's what they say, "Vietnamese' Guilin"
their way of life
similar to our floating market
where they sell fresh seafood
look at the food they served on a "2 star" boat. not bad at all, wasn't it?
and this is for 2 people only.
another angle of the boat
it's a half day trip which was good enough. The whole day or an over night trip would be too long. Nothing much to see, really.
On the way from Halong to Hanoi, we stopped by a handycraft centre, all made by handicapped people.
the market in HANOI
ทะเลสาปคืนดาบ The Legendary Tortoise
Interesting local vietnamese food. They served the rice noodles with melted shrimp paste and fresh local vegetables. The main dish was fish fried in tumeric oil. Yummy and Healthy!!
The name of the restuarant.
Another "Must See" attraction, water puppet show.
This is the hotel in Hanoi. It was previously some prince's residence. Unique!
