If You Only Had Two Hours in... Hanoi
19 Mar 2018INSPIRATIONBY SweetEscape

In Hanoi with only two hours to kill? We consulted our local photographer and Hanoi resident Hoa Tran Trong, who came up with exciting yet practical ideas on what you could do if ever you're left to your own devices in the Vietnamese capital for that amount of time. Check out what he has to say below.

Go To Hoan Kiem Lake

Otherwise known as Lake of the Returned Sword, it is one of the major scenic spots in Hanoi and serves as a focal point for its public life.

Eat Pho

You should try Pho in Pho Tin Restaurant, at 11 Lo Duc Street. It is the best dish you could have in Hanoi!

"The first thing you will notice about the city is the people. I strongly believe that above all else, it's the people that make a place what it is. Hanoi is a great example of that. The locals are very friendly and they always have a smile on their faces. I think that's what I love the most about the city." - Hoa Tran Trong
