Loved the Old Quarter with all the great restaurant and true flavor of Hanoi. Don't miss New Day Restaurant and walking around the tiny streets near the cathedral.

The Old Quarter is filled with wonderful street food restaurants; bustling with activity; wonderful people watching and great fun. Our group of 4 did a walking street food tour which was a great way to experience the food of Hanoi. Definitely don't miss it!

Interesting to wander round once, and some lovely buildings hidden behind what is mainly noise, bustle, more shops than you think can possible survive, we just didn’t get the magic others seem to have though
