One great trip on a bike is up Ba Vi Mountain, just make sure the bike is in good nick especially for the great glide down the mountain.

Hi Marcus,
Hanoi is a great city to see and you can easily spend your whole time there being busy seeing everything! As you plan to rent a motorbike, I would kindly invite you to check out my Hanoi motorbike tour tips. The traffic in Hanoi is horrid, the streets are bad and the air is full of exhaust fumes - so no better place to be adventurous and ride your bike there! ;)
My tip would be to rent a motorbike there and leave the city via Chuong Duong Bridge. This will take you to the countryside and allow you to see rural Vietnam in all its beauty! Check out these pages for more: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/771ef/#TL

I'll leave for Hanoi on Tuesday and am so much looking forward to revisiting this lovely city!

Hi,

Its a great way to rent a motorbike and explore Hanoi. You can visit the places that I aready listed on my page http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/93e1b/ you can get more than 5 places on a day, depends on your driving & map reading talents :p
Besides, you can visit several places by outskirts of Hanoi but its better you have local people to guide you or you could loose the way.
Tell me if you want more info abt Hanoi or Vietnam, I'll try to reply.
Cheers,
M&M

That's a good idea to discover Hanoi, however, Hanoi is a big and a very busy city, it's crowded with motorbikes and cars, the streets are narrow. I think you may be surprised and confused with the traffic when you are there. You can rent a motorbike easily and discover Hanoi in your way. There are some tourist destinations that you should not miss: Ho Chi Minh's Complex, Temple of Literature, Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, Hoan Kiem lake and the old quarter. You can also biking around Hanoi to the countryside, If you like to visit an old Pagoda But Thap pagoda would be a good choice because you can bike through countryside to reach there.

Have good time!

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Why are they wearing mask

by BeeTea

When I was in Mausoleum, most of the visitors are local people and they use handerchief as a mask cover their nose and mouth.
They wear it not only on the street (it's because of the dirty air) but also in the museum.
Our taxi driver explained it because they never smell aircon so they wear a handkerchief because it makes them sick.

Explore the villages (III)

by King_Golo

Instead of leaving the main road just behind Chuong Duong bridge, you may as well go straight on. Unfortunately, this road is heavily populated by all kinds of vehicles (such as oxen carts, bicycles, twenty-ton trucks, buses...). It's not in the best condition, either. The good thing: You can leave it anywhere you choose. If you turn to the left, you cannot get lost because this is the area between the airport road and the one you just left. Sooner or later, you'll end up on one of them. I would recommend driving on until Yen Vien and shortly after the town turn to the left at a white bridge. You will then find a village that is committed by 100% to steel production and processing. It's impressive to see: the machines are as old as the industrial age, there are no security provisions, but there's an enormous amount of hard work. I've talked to people who punch ten-meter steel poles into smaller pieces for as little as $2 a day. Others melt steel and produce these poles - they have to work in temperatures of about 80-100°celsius. It's a big advantage if you've got some Vietnamese speaking person with you as this will make it easier to get into contact with the people. They are very friendly and probably as curious as you are. But be careful where you walk and stand - there's hardly any security and steel can be very destructive!

Dark History behind Dong Xuan Market

by bpacker about Dong Xuan Market

While you're shopping at Dong Xuan, you'll be wondering why this spanking new 3 storey complex is standing in the middle of the Old Quarters. Here's why in 1994, the market was destroyed in a fire. 5 sods rushed in to save their goods and died...

Hanoi bus roiutes information

by 9hnt

Bus is the cheapest and quite comfortable transport in Hanoi, especially when you want to go around Hanoi for sight seeing.
But in old quarter, the bus can not cover much because the road is quite small.
Right now, most of maps in Hanoi doesn't have bus route so it’s not easy for foreigner to find out the bus information, but you can see the bus information in Hanoibus website
Below the bus routes:

Hillary Clinton was here once!

by airbrush about Central of Hanoi

Superb food with live traditional Vetnamise music play by the University of Music, Hanoi.

It is very popular even Hilary Clinton was recommendate to this restaurant. We hit this restaurant by chance when we were searching for food. Excellent service, don't miss the Vetnamise Spring Roll, they are mouth watering and one plate is definately not enough. Besides the cuttle fish dish is also very tasty and most of the dishes are very good. If you don't what to order just ask the captain, he will be able to recommend you the best food which suit you. Vetnamise Spring Roll is the best! One order is definately not enough. Try it than you will believe it.
