Vietnam stood for a while on our list of countries that we wanted to visit. We chose a combination with Cambodia because visiting the Angkor Wat was also high on our list. After three days in Singapore, we flew fresh to Hanoi and there we started out our tour. Highlights were the various villages we visited, staying and spending the night on a ship in Halong Bay, the Imperial City in Hue, Hoi An and boat trips on the Mekong River. Furthermore, the beautifully decorated palaces and temples we visited. But the traffic in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) will stay with us too. There are millions of mopeds / motorcycles driving criss-cross thru these cities. We enjoyed the friendly people and the nice food.
What struck me was that I only saw a few birds and then only from a distance.
