Hanoi was the last place I visited in Vietnam and my departure point.
I stayed in the 'Old Quarter' in the center of the city. It had a lot of attractions including a peaceful and pretty lake, Hoan Keim Lake and my favorite 'The Beer Corner' where Beer Hoi (fresh beer) was served. More about that in the pics.
I took pictures in the Hanoi Prison, however, I have not included any. The remaining part it is a museum with many pictures. I found they are quite disturbing. It was built by the French during their occupation. Suffice to say the Vietnamese people have suffered a lot first at the hands of the French, then the Americans.
