We did not stay at Indochina Hotel until we were back from Sapa, but rather spend 2 nights at the sister hotel Hidden Charm Hotel which did not have any entry for me to choose for reviews.
This hotel as my wife commented the best hotel stay in the whole Vietnam trip. It really like a hidden gem each room has its own theme and the location just hidden at the corner of the Hanoi best shopping area. Food and places for shopping all just within 5 to 10 minutes walking.
Staffs are really friendly and helpful too.

Another cool day that started warmer than yesterday, but by the end of the day I was sooking about being cold. I think it is down to about 17C.
We headed off to Dong Xuan Market out of curiosity.it is advertised as a commercial market but they will sell retail too. It just means that you might have to buy six of something if pre packed. Sort of like a mostly junky Costco. That being said, we did find ...

Throw in a handful of pickled vegetables and then ladle over it warmed fish sauce. To add one final flavor note, give the eater a pile of chopped red chilies. Put a few in the sauce. The longer you leave 'em in the hotter it gets. To stop the process just flick the chili out on the ground.
You assemble this mass ...
... this may have something to do with their cuisine. A happy tummy is a happy life. We have already tasted a host of wonderful flavours and have weeks more to go. In Hanoi they also sell fresh twenty cent cold draft beer that is quite good. At the end of a hard hot day of walking, it is a nice thing to sit on a tiny bamboo stool with a glass cold beer and watch the ladies across the street squatting on the sidewalk washing dishes ...
... language, looks. It's cool to see. After lunch, we got on a Dragon Boat and went up the Perfume River and visited an historic Buddhist monastery there. This is where they keep the car (see pic) that the monk Thich Quang Duc drove to Saigon. In protest to the government's anti-Buddhist policies, on June 11, 1963, he sat himself down at the busiest intersection in town, doused himself with gasoline, and lit himself on fire. This turned out to be one of the most famous ...
... around the lake, approx 1 mile in total. In the middle of the lake is the Turtle Tower. Crossed over the Japanese Bridgeport to the Jade Mountain Pagoda which was lovely. Really ornate and fragrant from the incense sticks burning. Sat by the lake watching the world go by. Disturbed by 2 local shoe menders who decided to mend our shoes - which didn't need mending! They weren't impressed when we only paid them a small amount of money. Thinking we ...
