    Top 10 Things To Do In Hanoi Vietnam
    The bustling city of Hanoi will assault your senses on arrival; with ferocious traffic, fanatical street sellers and imposing colonial architecture. As the capital city of Vietnam, Hanoi also has the ability to steal your heart on first visit thanks to a low key tourism infrastructure (there’s no glitzy malls here), authentic Vietnamese cuisine and a whole heap of things to see, do, try and taste throughout the city.

    To make the best of your visit, arm yourself with a detailed recent map and a reputable local tour guide who will know where to go, what to see and who’ll steer you away from any touts.

    Tips for smart street eating in Southeast Asia
    Smoky chicken sate plucked from a grill and dipped in sweet-spicy peanut sauce in a Jakarta alley. Steamed ground rice and jaggery cakes eaten from a banana leaf on a street corner in Penang. A mound of sticky rice drizzled with coconut cream and topped with juicy mango slices spooned up at a stall in a Chiang Mai market. For the Asia-bound traveler keen to know the region’s diverse culinary cultures, these are essential experiences.

    In this part of the world the term “street food” (or “hawker food,” as it’s referred to in Malaysia and Singapore) denotes not just a cheap and quick way to fill one’s belly. It also describes a repertoire of dishes prepared by experienced specialists, dishes rarely duplicated successfully in restaurant kitchens. Eating on the Asian street offers the opportunity to observe cooking techniques up close and to engage with strangers over a meal in a way that would be difficult in a proper brick and mortar eatery.
