    Vietnam Visa Run, Hanoi, November 2013

    Nipped over to Hanoi for 6 days for a little Visa run and short holiday. Stayed at " The Time Hotel " on Hang Giay Street. 10 minute walk away from the lake in the Old quarter. Great spot not to far away from the action and some nice street life straight out the front. We walked everywhere from our hotel. Nice big room with heaps of large windows. Good breakfast, good people and no hassle. They picked us up from the Airport for $18US. Saved the hassle pissing around organizing transport. Lots of scams going down regards transport from the Airport, much better to get the hotel to pick you up. $ 4 US extra but who gives a toss EH. This is the gaff.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    The Time Hotel on the left and an original house next door which doubled as a little caff. Sold beer as well.

    The restaurant was perched on the Top floor with great views. Really good staff, these two jokers and a chick. Solid breakfast, good choice. We where mostly in there on our own so got to know these guys well.

    Jesus Christ, if you want to off you're self go into this place and order a burger. This is Hanoi's answer to McDonald's. I had a look at some of the stuff they where trotting out and near on spewed. Good place to take a piss though on the way home.

    Nice thread Terry. Hope there's more to come. I agree with you on small places. In the big hotels there are too many staff and they get in the habit of hiding and loafing.

    This is the good oil. The good old salad roll found on every street corner in Hanoi. Ate one these at least once a day. 30 Baht.

    Hanoi has some nice old architecture, a coat of paint and a spruce up these buildings would shine.Also over looking the lake.

    Caricatures are a big hit, might have a problem capturing those eyes though.

    Just make sure you fire it away down that little hole and not over the back wall. The next punter will not be happy.

    In Vietnam the locals are well known for consuming some fairly horrid looking stuff. This ain't no exception. Think I'll pass EH.
