where we stayed
We stayed in Little Hanoi Hostel and loved it! Located in the old quarter of Hanoi and is situated close to all of the popular attractions. They handled our day trip to Ha Long Bay and reserved transportation to and from the airport. The front desk was beyond attentive to our needs or concerns and accommodated with compassion, can't recommend it enough.
how to get around
Hanoi has a variety of transportation options for visitors to get around the city, including motorbike or scooter rental, taxis, ride-hailing services like Grab, buses, and cyclos. Walking around the Old Quarter is a great way to explore at a leisurely pace, and visitors can also opt to take a scenic ride around the city on a traditional cyclo.
