Hanoi was more waking around the lake, eating in wonderful restaurants and sipping the local Vietnamese coffee and calming lotus tea. The pagodas, lots of shopping at market stalls and a 4D Imax movie experience…we watched Ben Hur with the seats moving, water spraying, smells related to the film wafting into the cinema hall…an interesting and one-time experience only.
Onto Da Nang and we stayed by the river. This is a city of lights and the dragon bridge and all the buildings light up with a display each night.
Traveled to Mỹ Sơn to see the ancient Shiva Temples and then to Hội An, the medieval port city.
All along the way, we had unforgettable experiences with pagodas, market streets, wonderful people and sights and sounds of Vietnam. Modern and ancient, fun, quirky…beautiful.
