Across the water of Hoan Kiem Lake.

Bridge across Hoan Kiem Lake.

Hectic and frightening, we love Hanoi! The roads are nearly impossible to cross and the pavements are filled with parked motorbikes and locals sat down on plastic stools. Although our evening walk was dangerous, it was entirely worth the risk. Amidst the high rise bars and cafes, we find Hoan Kiem Lake. Everything here is lit up with thousands of different coloured lights and lasers, hanging from trees and shining on the water. A man plays the violin and couples dance the waltz. It is all wonderfully surreal.
