Flag of Vietnam  , Hanoi,
Thursday, May 2, 2013

Had awesome breakfast which was included with our room at the hotel! Took a taxi to the Ho Chi Minh Museum Complex. We weren't really sure what we were getting ourselfs into as we were just walking with a whole lot of other people along a path then all of a sudden we were entering the building where they have Ho Chi Minh preserved in an open cast it was quiet surreal really. We saw the museum there and also the one pillar pagoda.
Then we walked down the road to the War museum where they had a helicopter, airplanes, tanks and machine guns, mostly all from the americans that the Vietnamese had taken down during the War. It was pretty interesting.
Then we went to the Hoa Lo Prison museum which was over rated as there was not much left of the Jail in its original state. We were museumed out after this so walked to the lake and sat at a nice outdoor cafe and had a drink. There were heaps of people walking around the lake and relaxing around the edge.
That night we ate at a local restaurant and had beef noodle soup.
