What a great trip! We wanted different, we certainly got different. It was a great experience as a family and the children were the right age. In Hanoi we did the Hanoi Free Tour and the Puppet show (a cultural must) but the highlight for us was the old quarter cookery class which was an amazing culinary experience! Our bike riding adventures in Mai Chau took us deep in the countryside where we got an impromptu invitation to a wedding. The area around Ninh Binh is very flat and beautiful and was one of our favourite places. The Hang Mua view point at sunset was spectacular. The Halong Bay cruise felt special – the food was excellent; the cabins were spacious and well-appointed and the limestone islands are a spectacular sight. In Hue we visited the Imperial City which is such a serene and beautiful place. Hoi An is very pretty and definitely the place to go to if you want tailor made clothes. In Ho Chi Minh we ate at the market and had a drink on the roof top bar at Hotel des Arts. Thank you again for helping us make amazing memories!
