A long weekend in Hanoi is great

One long weekend our group of volunteers took the overnight train to Hanoi and stayed in the old french quarter. Hanoi has so much character and is such an interesting city. There is soo much to do.

We lined up for hours to enter the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum but it felt well worth it to catch a glimpse of the man himself(? highly speculated upon!).
We enjoyed fine food and the hustle of the city and it's people around us.

We took a day trip out to Halong Bay. This was a beautiful day spent cruising the water and visiting the limestone caves.

The few cities and sights I did see were so endearing I have promised myself to return one day. I hope you enjoy these sights as much as I did!
