When we arrived at the Real Hotel, Thu Giang Guest House, we were amazed. The people were so incredibly nice it made up for the a-holes at the other place. They have to work 2x as hard thanks to the copy cats. They were great, the tours they booked were great and they even sent us off with a bag full of Lychee the day we left. If you want a great tour, book with "ODC Travel" or through Thu Giang. We took their 2 day 1 night tour of Ha Long Bay and loved it.
While in Hanoi we hit the hot spots. First on the list was the final resting place of Uncle Ho. Ho Chi Mins Mosuleum has the best A/C in the country and the longest lines but also the fastest. We were in and out in 15 minutes. They would not let us bring in our cameras so no pics of Old Ho and you must keep your hands at your sides at all times! No crossing arms or sticking hands in pockets or else! Later we explored the Temple of Literature, Ho's museum and a Pagoda or two. Apologiese to our Asians friends but we're all templed and pagoda'd out. We even visited the famous Hanoi Water Puppet Show.
Most of the time we explored the city streets and markets, resturants and street bars. We said goodbye to Janet, Shona and Calle(who is actually from Sweden and not South Africa) and were forced to adventure on our own again. We miss you guys! Travel safe!
Now we're headed back to Bangkok to book tickets to India. Now the fun really begins! Wish us luck and keep your fingers crossed!
