I just came back from Hanoi 2 days ago. The weather there is nice and cool, a cardigan will do just fine. But if you are heading to Halong Bay, then a thicker sweater will be better as it is very windy at the sea and the temperature drops drastically at night!

Travel Tips for Hanoi

?sapodilla

by TomorrowsAngel

I am not 100% sure that I have got the right name for the fruit in my picture below, but hopefully someone will tell me if I'm wrong!!!
The sapodilla is a species introduced to Vietnam, it is widely planted in the north, first being grown in Xuan Dinh, Tu Liem district, Hanoi.
The fruit is egg-shaped and weighs 10-200g.
There is a reddish skin to peel off the fruit.
The brown and yellow pulp that encloses its flat, shiny-black seeds is very sweet, juicy and full of flavour.
There are 2 popular species of sapodilla grown in Vietnam: orange pulp and white-yellow pulp sapodilla.

Explore the villages (II)

by King_Golo

As Hanoi is encircled by the Red River (Song Hong) to the North, it is sort of hard to leave the city in this direction. Basically, there are only two bridges crossing the river - Chuong Duong bridge to the East and Thang Long bridge to the North (and the airport). Nevertheless, it's a wonderful tour if you leave Hanoi via Chuong Duong bridge. If you turn right immediately after the bridge, you'll find a dike road that follows the river. This road finally leads to Bac Trang village, known for its beautiful and kitschy ceramics. Don't be surprised if you find St.Bernardine dogs with a basket for easter eggs on their back... Don't think about porcelain figures of little naked boys that stand upside down. Try not to care about English inscriptions a la "I love you" that are spelt completely wrong. What you should do instead is considering buying a very beautiful tea service or the like. It's really cheap but still good quality. Furthermore, you can watch the porcelain makers working in some open factories. Bac Trang is a good place to start a tour through Hanoi's vicinity.

Trang Tien Plaza_Shopping mall

by Ladyfromasia about Trang Tien Plaza

This mall is not so big and it sells cloths, shoes, watch, jewellery, perfumes... You can not find luxury brands in here. Anyway, you can walk around to avoid the hot weather outside for a moment :p

be aware

by izar

I would encourage you to ONLY take CP taxi or Hanoi Taxi. When you or somebody calls for a taxi for you , it is best to emphasize. Otherwise you may end up paying double the amount.

WE once took a CP taxi, we thought, a restaurant called, and he had a fake "label" outside. It was a magnet. He touched something under the glove compartement and the meter started to run , my husband told him what was happening and suddenly the meter stopped. We paid the fair price.

Make sure the meter is covered by glass.

I hope they have told us when we first arrived.

Bobby Chins Over-Rated

by Hongkongexpat about Bobby Chins, Hanoi

I just returned to Hong Kong from a 4 night trip to Hanoi. On Saturday my wife and I came across the recommendations on this site for Bobby Chins. Yes he is the obnoxious cook who is on Discovery Travel and Living and whom I turn off the moment he comes on (much prefer Anthony Bourdain). Nevertheless, my opinion of his show is not relevant, I read the reviews on here and they were very positive so we tried it out.

One of the reviews mentioned the restaurant 'would not be out of place in NY or London'.

Utterly ridiculous - the interior, if you can see anything its so dark, is definitely not luxury by any standard in a major city. The food was decent but to compare this restaurant with top restaurants around the world is insane.

Another review mentioned the food was fusion vietnamese. More like Moroccan or Middle Eastern. Again the food is ok... but definitely nothing on the menu was vietnamese

And now to the most ridiculous of the reviews, the ones that claim the menu is filled with humorous comments. I cant remember most of the cheesy, stupid comments but the one I do recall mentioned something about 'not behaving like a whore dancing on the bar' or to that effect. WHAT!!!! This place masquerades as a fine dining restaurant and there jokes in the menu mentioning hookers, what can they possibly be thinking. The comments on the menu are in no way funny (and the fact that the reviews state they are hilarious makes the identity of the reviewer suspect.....)

But then if you have seen Bobbys show then you know where he is coming from. One of the reasons I dont watch is the few times I have he has made totally inappropriate off the cuff remarks about hookers.

We went once and would never return - nor would we recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Hanoi. Bad taste of Bobby Chin aside, why travel to the awesome city of Hanoi to eat mediocre Moroccan food (or whatever they call it).
