Dont need to segan segan

Anyway...

Day 3
After a good trip to Halong Bay, it was time to head back to Hanoi

1. Rice, rice and more rice! Vietnam is one of the few countries capable of exporting rice


2. Stopped by for some sweet pineapples before heading back to Hanoi


3. Back in town, we visited a temple. On the way to the temple, you can see these masters of the scissors at work


4. As usual, there were people at the roadside hoping to secure some sales


5. In the temple, one entrance led to another and another and another...


6. As we were leaving, a little girl was running happily around us. Must have been happy to see me..


7. Hopefully, she won't be tired and sleep everywhere like him


8. It was closing time at Dong Xuan Market and must have been good business for her


9. Outside, you can see people offering ride homes for a fee. I've heard of taxis but have you seen motorcycle-taxis? This man was eagerly looking for a customer


10. But as one market closes, another begins its day outside

4. Squeezing zits = Showing affection


5. With love, size doesn't matter


6. Hello?


7. Vietnam's Leonardo Da Vinci


8. The balancing act


9. Smell the beans!


10. They ain't heavy, they're my bananas


Finally, I reached the end. Thanks for all the comments throughout the series

Thanks macropixman!

I think November is a good month to go. Weather is cooling and their rainy season should be over. I believe it is near the end of Autumn then so you get the winter cool air

Everywhere in Hanoi is great for street shoot. Of course the park in the middle of the Hanoi City, the Old Quarters Area are just some of the areas with more interesting shots.

And it is quite safe, but do watch out for pickpockets at crowded places. It is advisable to leave your passport in the hotel safe before venturing out. And crossing the road in Hanoi is an experience. The advice is:

1. Don't panic and run
2. Walk casually and don't freeze and stop

Basically, the motorists will avoid you, so if you panic and run or worse, stop all of a sudden, then its accident waiting to happen. When I was there, I just walked straight without looking and hoped for the best
