She met another friend who was already in Hanoi, then they traveled by train to Lau Cai, then on to Sapa to go trekking in the mountains and see the hill tribes. They joined a tour group for that mountain trek but for the city tour of Hanoi, they did on their own. Her friend did a Ha Long Bay tour too. I haven't been to north Vietnam but have been to Saigon several times. If you're interested, check out the thread I did about Saigon so that you'll have an idea. There are other Vietnam threads too.

    @BLD: I'm looking forward to another travel thread of yours. I traveled during this break to the Visayas by RORO. It was my first time to travel by RORO and was quite a chaotic experience, given that it was peak season. The ports in Batangas, etc. were all congested with locals. Some white backpackers too. If I have the time, I might do a thread (but I foresee a lot of work in the coming days) so I don't know when I'll be able to do it. Btw, did you meet up with crocman in Vietnam? Cheers and Happy New Year to you & your family!
    Katie, can you send me the link to your Saigon thread? I am more interested in the north but I,would like to read about your experience.
