Top Local Tips for Hanoi
shopping in hanoi, old quarters Bring cologne, a water bottle and a water spritzer because walking around in the heat and humidity can be draining. (May-July can be really hot.) Some stores are air conditioned but most arent. More often than not, bargain with the shop keeper.
Hello Hanoi One of the best things we did was take a city tour with a couple of students from Hello Hanoi, a group of students at Hanoi University that give free tours in order to practice their English. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (if you google it online, you'll probably just find and old yahoo address that is not accurate anymore). The girls that met us were great. They come to your hotel, take you to sights, and show you their city. You pay for the taxi, buy lunch, and if you like, give them a little tip at the end of the day. We could have gotten the same information about "the sights" from our guidebook, but what made it special was talking to them about their culture, politics, having them help us buy unusual street food and take us to one of their favorite restaurants for lunch, and a little locals juice shop, and especially taking us into a pagoda and offering incense and helping us communicate with the pagoda keeper who loved to share the history of her sight. Fun!
